We stayed at the New Inn in Halse for one night when attending a friend's wedding. We only paid £55 for the room so didn't expect too much.
Upon arrival at the Inn we found that our room was like an ice box - the heating wasn't working. After a couple of trips downstairs to see a member of staff, this was fixed, but surely it would have made sense to ensure that the heating was on before we arrived (we were expected after all)! The room took ages to warm up.
Once the heating was sorted the stay was fine - the bed was comfy and the room was clean.
We took breakfast at 9.30 the next morning - breakfast is usually served between 8 and 9 but the staff kindly agreed to serve us later as we had a late night. Breakfast was freshly cooked and tasty.
This inn is very very quiet - I suppose depending on your taste this could be a positive or a negative. I found it a bit eerie - there was barely anyone around most of the time. Maybe that's because I'm a city dweller.
A good place to stay if you are on a budget, but I would rather pay more for somewhere a bit nicer.
