OK first things first, this is not a hotel, it's not even a B&B, its an old village pub that rents out rooms. Yes, it might be quirky & full of character, so you may expect a bit of dust or a few cobwebs, but the thin walls, creaky floorboards, squeaky uncomfortable beds & trains passing close by every 5 minutes led to a sleepless night, which ruined the stay and probably made it worse than it actually was.
After arriving, we searched for 5 minutes for a sign to the "hotel" reception, but there just isn't one, It's a small pedestal in the "bar & restaurant". Having received the key, I was then asked to pay straight away as "there won't be anyone around in the morning, so leave your key on the side & let yourself out!".
OK, now for the positives, mattress protectors (Alex Polizzi would be proud), the shower was very powerful and hot, which was a good start to the day. The tea/coffee making facilities are also good and there was a decent flat screen tv in the room.
As there was no breakfast available in the morning we drove to the Village Cafe in Abbots Langley which is only a mile away and I can highly recommend it as the service & food were very good at a reasonable price.
Would I stay here again - NO.
