Found New Inn only week before due to travel ,yes will be honest booked it as it was good value for money bearing in mind we were only staying for 1 night before moving on to a ball at another establishment.
Must admit we were quite concerned when we read previous reviews but thought we would see for ourselves.
On arriving wha struck us was the magic of this inn/hotel which is was so charismatic and oozing charm and history we were quite pleasantly surprised ......Yes it is old with uneven floors and narrow stairs but my response to that is go and stay in a concrete nightmare somewhere with genuine MDF and plastic fittings .
Check in went smoothly greeted by deputy manager(little richard) could nt have been more welcoming our room was on the front (207)clean ,tidy,smelt fresh,large bathroom ....ideal
Our friends however when they got to their room it wasnt ready (bed unchanged ,dirty towels on bed and bottle of half drunk water on the side ) but rather than kick off as previous guests had done they made a joke of it with reception and were rewarded with Lady Grey suite .
Bar served proper ales and Stowford press cider so we were settled for the night ,friends who lived locally came to join us for a meal in the restaurant which i must say was good value for money ,mant 2 for £10 deals even including the carvery in that : although carvery did run out of meat.
Staff : what an amazing bunch of people special thanks to big Richard for making our stay so memorable but the team all rallied round and we felt like we had known them for ever (just one female bar staff who obviously had things on hermind and found it very difficult to smile ) but that was only 1 .
After a wonderful evening retired to bed ,no untoward noise to complain about :beds comfortable only thing had to sleep with bathroom light on as i had spooked myself with the tales of sittings of old ladys of days gone by ......
Breakfast excellent ;plentiful ,fresh and hot
Car park situation;£2..50 for 24 hour period and close by in a secure car park .
Location brilliant right in the middle of shopping area really handy .
All in all a fantastic stay will definately stay again and highly recommend this to others only thing i would say it may not be suitable for people with limited mobility due to narrowness of the stairs and is not wheelchair friendly but then again it is a 14th century inn.
Hey guys dont change a thing; hope to see you again next year !
