stayed 20th/21st September very last minute booking for the area and struggled to get 2 rooms in the 1 hotel so we ended up there. Very long drive and arrived just minutes before restaurant closed but could not get a meal, improvised with a Chinese from the local takeaway, that's another story DO NOT TRY.... Had single room 3 and double room 7 I don't know if they are in the process of renovating as room 7 was okay, not good, very strange lay out of everything, telly where dresser should be etc, bathroom very small and shower only useable if you stood using it. Now room 3 daughter and granddaughter with a travel cot set up in this room, overall seemed cleaner but the bathroom, no bath but wow what a difference very modern and very clean.
Breakfast very average, had fry up first morning had quite a wait , not worth the wait next morning had cereal not a huge choice of cereal better than nothing I suppose. Daughter had fry up waited that long I took granddaughter to car as she was getting grouchy and we didn't want other guests to listen to a screaming baby.
Staff:- I think it all boils down to disorganisation, as the bar staff are trying to be the waiters to a full restaurant, and also serve at 2 bars that were quite busy I blame the owners as on both nights there was only 3 staff Friday night and 4 sat night and the service from 1 led us to believe he was training.
Would I go back no, the cost for a very late booking was not cheap and I would hate to pay the so called full price and stay in the accommodation we stayed in. Shame really, nice very quite area just the hotel let it down.

- The Inn is a old listed building were the rooms vary from single to double rooms, no twin rooms available, As the building is listed we have not been able to increase any of the rooms sizes however we feel the rooms are adequate in size and are a bargain at £50 per night including breakfast. All rooms have ensuite within time along with TV's and are all very comfortable.
