Good bits = the building is amazing, the bed was really comfortable, the water was hot and the towels were clean and fluffy. Other than that it's a grade II listed medieval inn which really needs some remedial work to comply with basic 21st century safety features. Lots of broken light fittings seen and extension leads joined together. Several PAT test stickers on kettles etc seen to be over 2 years out of date. Shower head had to be held together, and cracks in the base of the bath were mended with raised patches of sealant. Bit concerned that similar disregard may have been paid to alarm systems, and the place is such a rabbit warren that visitors could easily be disorientated in an emergency. The night we went there was live music in the bar downstairs, which apparently continued until the police arrived at 2.20am to 'remind' the bar staff that it should have stopped at 1 am. Luckily we slept through it in the very comfortable 4 poster bed. Bit strange in the morning - no sign of any staff for ages after we went in search of 'breakfast'. Then found small selection of cereal, some bread, which was 2 weeks out of date going by the label, some crumpets- just out of date, jam, butter, cartons of milk and the usual sachets of coffee/tea etc. Unfortunately the kettle was found to be broken so a member of staff had to be tracked down to replace it so we could even make ourselves a hot drink. It appears that the hotel side of the business is not serviced separately, since the couple of staff we saw seemed to have been working until the early hours in the bar, and therefore it was not surprising that, although they were pleasant enough, they were less than lively . All in all a real shame that a bit more attention isn't paid to maximise the potential of the place - and minimise the fire risks from the untested electrical appliances attached to trailing extension leads. I'd love to be able to recommend the place, even with breakfast limitations, but don't feel I can with the current safety issues.
