£8.00 for a pint of Landlord and a gin and tonic - that's Surrey prices, and a bit! And horrible music as well.
We booked for a nights stay at Leeming Wells after calling at the adjoining pub, The Dog & Gun, whilst out on a drive during the winter months. The pub was very welcoming and we decided we would return for an overnight stay, although we didn't know what the hotel was like, but if the pub was anything to go by, we thought it should be fine.
The hotel reception was unmanned and visitors had to report to the pub to check in. The welcome was very good and we were shown to our room.
We were in room 3, or the Ann Suite, which was a quite large room but very sparsely furnished. The was a huge headboard, which was attached to the wall with the bedside tables attached to either end. This should have accommodated either a king size or super king size bed, but actually held a standard size double bed which looked very lost in the big space. This mean that the bedside tables were unreachable when you were in bed, being about two feet away.
Although the room was a good size, there were no chairs so the only place to sit was on the bed. There was a suitcase shelf but there was a lamp on it so we couldn't put the case on it. The furniture was a bit past it's best and all the surfaces were quite scratched and marked. Another small niggle was the fact there was an exterior light fixed right outside our window which was left on all night and made the room very light. If the curtains had been thicker this wouldn't have had the same impact.
On the plus side, we had Sky TV.
On the way to our room, it was possible to look through a window into the function room, which had beautiful views of the valley but we were a little confused by the fact there was a sauna in the corner of the room. Why??
We had a lovely meal in the Dog & Gun which was of excellent quality, piping hot and excellent value for money. There was also a special offer on where if you ordered two main meals, the cheapest was free. We would definitely recommend anyone to visit the pub. Although the pub was a bit out of the way it was extremely busy with diners and we thought that the owners were missing a trick not offering a dine and stay package at a reasonable price.
To sum up, we thought that £75 for the room was far too much as we have stayed in much better rooms for less, but the surrounding countryside was beautiful but we were lucky to visit on a lovely sunny day. We couldn't rate the hotel service as it was not manned although there was a nice little bar which would have been ideal for residents to make use of if they didn't want to sit in the pub.
