“Parched till 6pm”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2007

Hotel/Inn was not open when we arrived at 4.30pm. Had to talk to a chef who contacted the landlord(who turned out to be the owner of the establishment). The owner then signed us in but told us that the bar would not be open until 6pm. He showed us to our room (number 5) which was overlooking the village main road. Room quite clean but very basic eg no headboard on the bed, no chairs or any means of sitting other than on the bed. Bathroom very small with stiff controls for the shower-two hands required to operate the on/off function. Lighting in the room was very dim and the beadside radio/alarm did not work. TV reception was poor, BBC1,2,3 and Ch4 only- had to manipulate TV rod aerial to get a reasonable picture.
Evening meal was from a la carte menu which was quite extensive. To start, we both had Confit duck on garlic mash followed by a welcome lemon sorbet(complimentary and very nice too!). For the main course we both opted for slow roasted shoulder of lamb(boned and rolled and cut into quite large single joints) served with vegetable selection which included boiled new and lyonnaise potatoes. All of this was quite good and satisfying when washed down with a bottle of Fleurie(£19.95 per bottle).
Breakfast, cooked to perfection, with bacon, egg, sausage, tomatoe(with option of hash browns and mushrooms) was served with thick slices of granary bread toast accompanied with excellent marmalade. The usual preliminaries of cereals and orange juice were also available.
All in all meals are very good and for a price of £65 per room B&B (Total cost £124.30 including dinner and wine) our stay was fine.
Perhaps a little bit more warmth and friendliness from the staff and chairs and a headboard in the room would have made our stay more pleasant.
