This was actually well recommended to me by locals after having a terrible experience at another hotel. I stayed for 7 nights in room 4 which was above the entrance on the main road side. The room was lovely, basic and simple. It was clean and had plenty of room to store my two suitcases. The drawers and wardrobe were basic but did the job! A full complimentary tray of tea and coffee and plenty of milk with a kettle was provided and refreshed daily. The bathroom was spacious and clean, with a bath and a shower. Plenty of fresh towels available too. The room has central heating which is on a timer. Although I stayed in most of the time (I had been travelling abroad for 6 months) they were more than willing to turn the heating on just for me. The bed was amazing! I have no idea what the seret is but I had the best nights sleep in a long time! Very comfortable indeed! Even though I was facing the road side the windows were double glazed and pretty much sound proof! I was impressed even with the heavy traffic. Although when they have deliveries at 7am I can hear abit of clanking around. They have a KFC just down the road and a coop opposite and a chemist a few doors down. Everything you could need in a stones throw. I must say though, the food is wonderful that they serve! They have specials every day and are very reasonable. It is pub grub, nothing too fancy but a good wholesome meal! ...I would recommend the owner put a basic menu in the room (So I could look and take my time choosing from the varied menu!). Even though I was a young woman staying in a pub I didn't at all feel intimidated. The locals were friendly and I even saw families dining at one point. Eating alone I was catered for by the team very well. Even when the pub is closed you do get a key to enter through a private door. I saw alot of negative feed back on here, which I would write off as either outdated or false. The price is fantastic for what it is. I even got a discount for staying so many nights. The only real negative factor is that it is not for those in a wheel chair or walking disabilties as the stairs are steep. Also, need to be clear when you arrive or you might have to wait for the pub to open when checking in!
It is about a mile or so from town centre, I would recommend the regular bus service which is every ten minutes or so from outside the pub it costs around 2.50 one way. Taxi costs around 5.00 which is directly opposite the pub.
The staff are genuine and friendly and will drop everything to help you with any enquiry you have. They even let you run up a tab on the room if your out of cash and fancy a quick pint before bed!
For the price it is a fantastic place to go if your just looking for a room.
