“Don't stay here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2011

Rooms are relatively ok, but the place smelled like old beer everywhere (including the kitchen). Despite clear arrangements about breakfast time (8 AM), the next morning the place was completely deserted. Eventually the barman showed up more than an hour late and did not even care to apologize. By that time we had already had breakfast elsewhere in town, so he could save himself the trouble. By far the worst place we stayed at during our one-week holiday.

On arrival we were greated and shown our rooms. Very helpful staff and excellent food provided for all at short notice. The whole family was made welcome and enjoyed the facilities of the pool table and the lounge bar. Rooms were comfortable and bathrooms clean with plenty of hot water.
Breakfast was excellent and, catered for vegetarian without problem.
The Landlord and Landlady are desperately trying to arrange an upgrade of the facilities to make all rooms en-suite, which would enable them to compete with other accomodation in the town. However the brewery that own the property are slow in authorising the work.
We loved our stay and thank the staff for making a large family feel so welcome.
