booked twin room for myself and sisterinlaw waited a long time in a public bar to book in, had to go behind bar to climb very steep and frankly dangerous stairs.No tea or coffee facilities, no bed side cabinet, rooms not that clean, no towels had to ask given very shabby towels the bathroom leaves a lot to be desired.Then the worst happens wake in the morning at 8.05am go down stairs to find the bar entrance padlocked no staff at all fire exit on a door proceed through to the kitchen , a door opposite with automatic lock, proceed outside to smoke and we hear a dog barking next the dog from hell appears large GSD running at us I shout to my sister in law to run, we retreat to the kitchen, my sister in law slips falls on her back hits her head extremely hard on the lower shelving, extremely shaken and feeling nausea,cant weight bear on right foot due to swelling, owner appears in between hoovering the bar he makes us tea and cooks b/fast while wiping his nose and eyes on a tea towel saying he has hay fever ..... there are no signs visible to say there is a dog running loose and if there was a fire you cant get through the bar due to padlocked door, so you are forced to go through kitchen door to be met by the dog. The owner saved us a taxi by taking us to where we had left the car, offered no other reduction the pub is in need of full refurbishment.On arriving home and attending the hospital the injury is torn tissue in ankle area a lump on the top of head pain killers and discomfort for some time all could have been avoided if there was literature to follow, I myself have since being home come out in itchy lumps on my shoulder and back ....... not a place to stay and wouldnt recommend this place at all very expensive and no hospitality soap, shower gel etc really needs to get in 2012 . overall very shabby !!!
