We booked in for a couple of nights whilst fly fishing on the Test, the Greyhound across the road was full, unfortunately.
Previous reviewers have pretty much said it all, but at the risk of repeating some things, here we go.
All of the members of staff have been blessed with youthful looks and may well only be just old enough to vote or drink in a pub. Nothing wrong with youth of course, but this manifested itself in a less than professional interaction with guests. Service is confused, ill informed or totally lacking. There is a serious requirement for an experienced and firm Manager and a whole pile of training. The greeting "you alright there mate?" on reception, doesn't really do it for me.
Restaurant and my room more appropriate for someone from Lilliput. Tourists from across the pond may well find it to be Olde Worlde charme, personally not being able to stand upright and walk I find painful. My room was cramped and the bathroom similar. Dropping the soap in the shower could well have proved awkward in more than one way! There was a dodgy looking bulb fitting in the top of the shower with the bulb missing.
Dinner order was lost, found, refused and then finally cooked. Quality ok ish. Breakfast offering 4/10, buffet.............what buffet?
Good choice of beer. Wine list..............limited.
Overall, poor vfm and if you had to chose one word to describe the whole experience it would be sloppy.
If you want better food, rooms and service, book the Greyhound, but well ahead of time.
