We came here for a short honeymoon after getting married last week. We honestly could not have picked better. On arrival, they were still cleaning our room, so we had a drink in the bar. Fortunately for us, we had chosen to stay on the weekend of the beer festival, so we had a brilliant selection to go at!
The staff are friendly and approachable, chatting easily and knowledgably about the beers, the Inn and the local music scene.
We were up so late on the Friday sampling the ales that we slept through breakfast, which is a mistake I won't be repeating as the Sunday morning's eggs benedict was lovely!
Two teeny complaints - the champagne we ordered wasn't in our room on arrival and the rooms are very dimly lit - which certainly adds character, but makes doing hair and make up a bit tricky!
Everything else more than made up for that though and we would definitely go back.
