stopped here for 1 night, room not very clean and very old fashioned, despite being told they were re-furbished. overall not too bad. rooms are over the pub which served good food and drinks.

Reviewed 25 February 2007

Just had our first ever b&b. Valentines pressy to ourselves. First impression was very good, big open bars and friendly staff, although our booking wasn't written down, lucky they werent booked up completely... The room was supposed to have been recently refurbished however the en-suite had only had the tiles painted over and the paint was already peeling off. Room was bright and airy but quite cold. T.v was mounted very high on wall which made viewing awkward. lots of road noise even though it was out of season. The restaurant downstairs is lovely and the new waitress 'Frankie' was very helpfull. We settled on the carvery from a very wide range of freshly cooked meals and it was lovely, as was the garlic mushrooms in wine sauce. Breakfast was lovely also. All in all we enjoyed our stay but felt it was a bit pricey at £50 for b&b for two people.

Stayed: February 2007
