The outside appears to be a charming but looks can be deceiving. You can tell this was once a nice well taken care of place but now it is showing its age with no maintenance.
Mold, wall paper peeling, old beds, absolutely NO water pressure, old linens. Our bathroom was down the hall and was to be used only by us. However, it was not clean. There was hair in the shower and around the toilet. <gross> The pictures on the website is from earlier days. The owners are not young and I would guess maybe close to retiring and not wanting to sink more money into the place.
Awards won are back from the 90's. Not extremely friendly host. Seemed put out to answer questions and quickly disappear. The place is quiet and walking distance to a local pub. The bed was terrible. The tv was 6 inches, no cable in rooms. TV was fuzzy and three or four channels. Said in room wifi.
Had to go to common room to get wifi to work and cable was set up on that tv. Food was warm and good but not service friendly. There are stuffed dead animals (quite in need of dusting) everywhere. Overall, this place is a pass. Needs quite a bit of maintenance. Best thing was the pub down the street.
After almost 4 weeks of traveling across the UK. There are only two places we would not recommend. This is one of them.
