9 of us stayed at the Carriage House the night before my daughter's wedding as we lived quite some way from the venue. Although opening hours for the restaurant and bar during weekdays is 5.30pm, someone was available to let us check in at 3pm. We were taken upstairs and shown the 5 rooms booked and left to choose our own. We all walked into our rooms and were struck at how fabulous they were. There was plenty of room, beautiful thick quilts on the beds and good sized wardrobes apart from the single which had a rack and hanging rail as had a double bed but not enough space for a wardrobe. Flat screen TV's in all of our rooms and fantastic bathrooms with shower gel, shampoo and soap and plenty of loo paper. Thick fluffy towels and plenty of hot water as well as tea, coffee (incl. decaf) and great biscuits. We had a couple of drinks in the bar which were reasonably priced and then ordered a meal. They have a good choice of bar snacks as well as a good choice of Turkish dishes. Bar and restaurant service were great - made to feel very welcome - as we could have been family. The beds were extremely comfortable. 4 of us had to be at the wedding venue by 8.15 next day and therefore asked Bev for an early breakfast and 2 others joined us. No problem. Juice, cereals, butter and jam left out for us and then we were offered tea and coffee and our orders taken. I had scrambled eggs - just as they should be. I really enjoyed them. We were told it would take about 15 mins for full breakfast as cooked from fresh. When the breakfast arrive our jaws dropped. I have never seen so much on one plate - bacon, sausage, egg, black pudding, beans, mushrooms, hash browns, tomato and fried bread as well as toast on the side. Don't understand why anyone was negative about the breakfast.
Room rate is so reasonable for a hotel like this. Obviously it is a B&B above a pub but I defy anyone to find such a little gem at the price they charge. Bev I think all of us will back at some time or another and to be honest as you are only 35 mins from where I live, I think I will be back very often for a meal. Thanks to you all
