We stopped at the Pack Horse as a bit of a trip down memory lane for me. I used to drink there when it was a pub in the 80s, and was in Louth visiting friends and family.
We spent 3 nights in room 4, the double room at the back, which was spacious, basic, and reasonably clean (quite a few cobwebs and dust above head height, shower head needed de-scaling).The TV was a tad on the small side given the size of the room, and we had no wifi coverage. No sign of the complimentary bottle of wine.
The first night there was quite a bit of noise from below until about 2230, and every morning at 0730 the fruit and veg shop next door took a delivery which involved someone using a castor wheeled trolley on a cobbled pathway!
The food in 'Smokey Joe's' downstairs was good, and the servings were big, but unless you like Tex/Mex then you couldn't eat their every night. Breakfast was good, with enough choice to fuel us up til lunch.
All in all the Pack Horse was average, and suitable as a central base for getting out and about to explore Louth on foot. If you want all mod cons and that little bit extra, look elsewhere.
