“Set your expectations according to price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2014

Good service and friendly staff, comfy bed with clean bedding, a decent breakfast cooked to order served with a smile and location smack in the middle of the town. Also has free parking although limited space available. A really old building and it could do with some tlc. I could be critical of the décor, the bathroom could do with a refurb and it was noisy until the music downstairs stopped at 12.30am but for the money, I am not complaining. Can't comment on food in restaurant as we ate out.

Room Tip: Room at the front of hotel looked into the main street but suffered with noise from road. A room at...

Arrived on Sunday and didn't like the feel of the room we were shown. Was offered another one, which was much nicer, so moved straight away and had a very nice stay. Room service delivered an excellent meal on the evening and the required vegetarian breakfast was equally as tasty. Staff were all very helpful and polite and nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate to stay here again, room was spotless and facilities more than value for money! Well done the boars head :-)

We stayed Monday just gone at the boars head we had a lovely stay. Room was clean, bathroom was spacious and a big bath. Breakfast was great, it seems they have a new menu since I stayed last . Also herd that the hotel has a make over on the cards, I made sure to tell them to make sure they keep the character , wich I'm sure they will. The owners are very kind people who went out of their way to make sure out stay was as enjoyable as possible

We booked for a Sunday Lunch and were herded into a small room with about 24 other people, two lots of whom were parties. The wood panelled walls vibrated the noise so much one of our couples had to turn off her hearing aid. The roast meal was excellent while the sweets were awful. The normal dining area had loud piped music : quiet this place was not. It seemed as if the owners were trying to cram as many people into the smallest of spaces. It was a highly uncomfortable experience. Will not return.

Fantastically located, right in the heart of the town, we received a warm welcome from the staff there, who simply couldn't do enough to help. The food we had was fantastic, and it was a rare treat to stay in the fantastic four poster bed! The stairs can be difficult, but there are well equipped rooms for the less-abled amongst us. I would heartily recommend
