Had a 2 course meal. Very good and cheap. Service OK but young waitress not well trained and took a long time to get the bill. Friendly and comfortable bar.

Looked promising but there were several negatives. Dusty and cobwebby cupboard with poor supplies of tea and coffee - no milk at all. Kettle had to be used on floor as lead was too short to reach socket. TV was very small and so near the ceiling it gave a crick in the neck unless lying down. Only 2 terrestrial channels.
Tired and dated decor. On the positive side it was quiet and the towels were soft and fluffy!
Not good value for money unfortunately. I will not be recommending it.

TV mounted so high it was impossible to watch and remote did not work properly.
Bannister up to room very dirty and sticky.
To use kettle we had to move the bed away from the wall and rest a shoe on the switch to make it work.
Very noisy from the bar,loud music and the noise continued until 1.30 am.
Broken window repaired with cling film, but the staff were very pleasant.

Nice welcome. Room very basic and very unclean. Cobwebs everywhere. Lots of noise from bar downstairs. Had a nice meal in the evening.

We were welcomed with a smile (thanks Harriet!) and after eleven hours in the car due to M6 traffic chaos that was a terrific start! The room isn't modern, but this isn't a modern Travelodge type inn. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Down to the bar, where the range of drinks was good and well-priced (try the rioja and the pinot grigio), the atmosphere friendly and welcoming, and the French-styled food superb. If it's not the best French onion soup we've had, in the UK OR in France, it's so close the difference doesn't count. The pub is fairly small and a little out-of-the-way, but it's very well worth discovering.

Room Tip: Ask nicely at the bar!

Stayed in this Hotel (Should rename it hostel!) for a couple of nights
The room was small and in desperate need of decorating, it had wood chip wall paper that was peeling, the door felt very insecure and if someone pushed hard enough i reckon that it would have opened!
The TV was mounted on the wall, but too high up to watch from the bed. and to boil the kettle you had to pace it on the floor! Not a very safe thing to do!
On the plus side at least the water in the bathroom was hot, the cleanliness was to be desired and the light cover in the bathroom had a big hole burnt into it.
Decided on the first night to sample the food, asked for a pork chop, tht is what i got, no vegetables! just a few very soggy chips,
This is unfortunate as the Landlord is actually a very nice chap.
