£69 for the room, then food + drink on top (£19.95). Breakfast was 'continental', anything hot was extra (apart from the toast and coffee). I had scrambled eggs on toast with mushrooms @ £4.45 extra, as I didn't fancy dried banana slices, prunes(?) and various other dried items which could of been beyond their sell by dates, it just didn't look appetising. They did not have any cerials I liked.
Admittedly, in the evening, the resturant and food was brilliant, if not a little darkly lit, due to the 'innkeeper' effect. The staff were good too, helpful and friendly. Plenty of parking and a nice view of some hills towards Exeter, which I couldn't exactly see from my rooms windows. A busy junction nearby had near on constant traffic all night, which didn't worry me much, but the windows were old fasioned and broken, so they wouldn't shut properly.
Secondary double glazing was fitted, but it was like a monkey puzzle to fathom out how to close either the outside or inside part first, without trapping your hand, the curtains or the other window in the process. The ousside windows were filthy.
The rest of the room looked like it had been recently decorated by a child, holes in the walls, doors and generally very run down.
Pictures are on the well known flickr site and tagged as the name of the establishment.
