We decided to try The Down Inn as I had a couple of people to visit in the area.
It was a last minute decision to stay and as soon as I called up to see if they had any rooms I knew that this place would be good. The lady was so friendly and helpful and we got a great deal by booking direct with the hotel.
Our check in was seemless and the lady who checked us in seemed genuinely happy to see us. She was a breath of fresh air after a long journey in the cold and dark. The roaring log fire was a lovely welcoming touch also.
Our room ( Room 2 ) was perfect. Spotlessly clean, warm, spacious and very well equipped. The bed was so comfortable.
We decided to have a carvery in the evening ( having read the reviews on TA ) and we were so impressed. I always remember being taken to a carvery in the 1970's as a child by my parents and remember how much of a treat that seemed. ( Thick slices af meat, crispy roast potatoes and perfect vegetables ! ) My opinion of carveries has been somewhat tainted during adulthood due to the "cheap and nasty" chains that have appeared everywhere. That was until I had The Downs Inn carvery...it brought back all those happy childhood memories of what a "real" carvery should be.
It was perfect and so filling...not to mention great value at £8.50!
Due to the really comfortable bed we actually overslept and missed breakfast! I was so impressed that the lady who checked us in offered to make us one despite our late showing! We declined but what about that for quality of service and kindness.
With so many inns closing and struggling I always ask myself what is the formula for success. I honestly do not know what the answer is but one thing is for sure....The Downs Inn knows the answer! It is a blue print for everything that is good about the traditional British Inn.
We loved every minute of our stay.
Thank you all for making our stay so pleasant. We will certainly stay again.
