Reviewed 8 April 2013

This is a lovely hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful and our room was very clean and above average size. Also, if you are lucky enough to get to eat in the restaurant you will not be disappointed. We, my husband and young daughter, stayed here as we were going to the Camping and Caravan show at the NEC. I will certainly stay again as I would like to explore the local area - the village has an interesting history. Look out for the adorable cat perched on the bench out front.

Stayed here a couple of nights whilst working in the area paying £62 b&b. Having read some of the other reviews, I have to agree with most of them.
The food in the bar is very good and reasonably priced, the rooms are adequate and as expected for the rate. Service is very slow with rarely more than one person actively serving on the bar. The breakfast included is poor, cold coffee, cereal, tinned fruit and some bread to toast.
The bathroom doorway in my room was very low, i'm 6'1" and nearly knocked myself out in the middle of the night!
I'd stay again because it offers what I need - free parking, free wifi, comfortable room and all at a good rate for the local area.

Having stayed at this establishment last weekend I can only say that we had a very good experience, the staff were welcoming and friendly and helpful. The bedroom and bathroom were clean, comfortable and more than adequate. What more could you want? No complaints at all.

I am a local, and have used the pub part of the Dun Cow for decades. This was the first time I stayed there, and it wasn't impressive. The staff - who are never very efficient when I go for drinks, mainly because there simply aren't enough of them - took quite some time to check me in. The room was big but too close to a slamming door - on the upside, on a truly terrible snowy day, it was plenty warm enough. Wifi was sporadic, not reliable, and there was no cooked breakfast. The Dun Cow seems to rely almost entirely for its business on its food, with drinkers and hotel guests seeming to be something of a nuisance. There is nothing overtly wrong with it, it's just not very good - and, annoyingly, there is nothing wrong with it that wouldn't be sorted out by employing a few more staff and encouraging basic customer service. Try harder, Dun Cow! I ended up just using it as a base, and going for drinks at the far more fun Green Man, just across the road.

Bad service staff and manager down graded and too high a price for what it is. FULL OF MISERABLE EMPLOYEES AND BADLY RUN not recommened for those who want a good time, you will be on a horrible outlook on life as the staff do not smile no friendly atmosphere. They say but not deliver.

Stayed here for one night. Initial impressions were positive - the Inn looked lovely in the early evening with the snow falling. Room 1 was large and comfortable. We had requested the sofa bed to be made up but this had been overlooked. However, I made a quick trip down to the bar to ask for this to be done and it was all sorted in 10 minutes. Just after the member of staff left, we then noticed a wet/soiled towel hanging up in the bathroom behind the door. Didn't want to make too much of a fuss as a) they had been prompt in sorting out the sofa bed b) we were only there one night and c) the room with breakfast for the 4 of us (2 adults 2 kids) cost just £35.

Only other downsides were that the room suffered from road noise (the Inn is right on the main road so you should expect this) and the continental breakfast was a little stale but edible (I guess it depends what time you go down to eat)! Overall, this was an average night's stay. Can't say we would be rushing back as this was more a convenient stopover on our way to Suffolk but at the price we paid, we can't grumble too much. Prefer Innkeepers to Travelodge anyway.

Didn't eat at the Inn - tried the 2 for 1 Marstons pub in the next village (The Boat House). Really good and right next to the Canal.
