“Basic - room for improvement”
Reviewed 23 May 2010

Stayed at Squire's Cottage (one of the Inn's self catering cottages round the back of the pub) with partner and friends. Accommodation was basic but adequate, in an ideal location for walking and climbing. The property needed cleaning properly and required a few basic repairs. Main gripe was that the fridge did not work. This was reported three times but owners showed no interest. No shower, but plenty of hot water for central heating and bath.

Pluses: Good selection of well-kept Real Ale, good value bar meals. Rooms relatively cheap for the area.
Minuses: Rooms a bit grubby, towels miniscule, not all showers ran hot. Licence till 1am on Fri & Sat mean you won't get any sleep till after then. Staff don't go out of their way to be friendly. If you can cope with all this then the pub itself will be reward enough.

Stayed one night while on walking holiday. Our room was filthy, awful smell tracked down to unemptied bin in bathroom. Not sure what was in it! Ensuite was grubby, shower broken and leaking, could only get cold water out of it. Extractor fan not working, broken tiles and towel rail fell off the wall when I took off the bath mat. Thin, scratchy towels. Furniture was woven bamboo type which is hard to keep clean and looked dusty and dirty. Curtains torn and hanging off the rail. Laminate floor, fluff and dust under the bed. Very old T.V. on rickety bamboo wheeled stand and hardly any reception. Ancient wardrobe, dusty and fusty. Whole room looked as if it had not been cleaned for weeks. I can't say what other rooms were like.
We were the only people staying and when we got up for breakfast we were locked out of the bar where we could see a table set. Eventually a young man came downstairs (obviously just out of bed) with his dog and said he would have to make us breakfast. He did and actually it was very good except that we were not offered any cereal.
We didn't eat in the hotel as the state of the room put us off.
It was not a good experience and we were pleased that we were moving on the next day.
All the other hotels and B&Bs we stayed in in the area were great so this was a real disappointment.

family wedding, in a lovely setting, beautiful village, pub with holiday cottages attached. On arrival the owner wasnt very freindly, think she was busy as the wedding was being held there, room big, mixture of old and new, the spiders webs in the bathroom were off putting along with the cold shower, and dirty kettle, sandpaper towels etc, other party members had cold showers too. The food was nice, should be a bit cheaper.
