I called into this place after a very long 600 mile ride from the Isle of Man TT. It took the staff 15 minutes to reluctantly ask me what I wanted, after looking me up and down for that period of time. When they eventually asked me what I wanted, I asked if they had a room. No was the immediate answer without even looking at the register to check. This was a Monday night in the middle of nowhere. The large car park had 4 cars in it, including those belonging to staff and the diners. They had rooms but I looked too disheveled for their liking. They obviously don't have any mirrors in this Inn as they looked worse than me in their best clothes. Shabby hotel, shabby management, shabby attitude.
