My friend and I stayed in The Black Boy this weekend on Friday and Saturday night, as we were in the area for a wedding.
We needed a hotel for a wedding and this was the only one available!
They were showing the rugby in the barn and brought our breakfast out to us so we could watch and eat.
The were very accommodating with when we arrived (around 10pm) and left (12.30pm)
There were tea making facilities.
I booked a twin room and we were given a room with four single beds in. Had we known this in advance, we could have asked friends to share with us rather than staying miles away.
I was told the room was ensuite, however it was a private bathroom down the hall. This involved walking past other rooms to use the facilities.
The hotel is very old and on arrival there were several large spiders in the room that my friend had to remove.
The bed sheets were starchy and itchy, like you'd find on a hospital bed.
The room and bathroom were very shabby.
The shower (no bath) cubicle was small and the water only went to warm, not hot. It also had no power which meant for my long hair, it took a long time to rinse shampoo out.
Overall, would I go back or recommend this to another person, no, unless I was again given it as an only option. For £65 per night for the room, breakfast was included (although it was of a fairly low standard) but the staff were friendly and accomodating.
