“Not a pleasant room!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

If we hadn't of already paid and got 2 nights B&B for the price of one we would not of stayed in room 4. First impressions were not good and on further inspection of the bathroom it only got worse. We were greeted with the most horrendously stained carpet I have ever seen to be told that they were aware and were replacing next week!!! The decor was drab and everything old and grubby. The bed however was lovely and comfortable and the traffic noise not a problem. The bathroom again looked unclean with marks around the toilet base. My partner was nearly "killed" in the shower!! The shower head is heavy and falls from the support bracket so must just be held by hand. Again shower looked unclean with the filthy grout. It's a shame as the shower was powerful and the hot always lovely and hot. The bath was large and deep and filled very quickly.The soap, shampoo and shower gel were nice. Both rooms are really spacious and could be made to be really welcoming.. complete refurbishment and decoration required and then it would be worth the price asked.
The full breakfast was really tasty and couldn't fault that. We can't comment on the bar meals as we ate out on both occasions. We arrived back on the Sunday evening to find a quiz going on in the bar which we were kindly invited to join. It was run by a lovely friendly lady who apparently organises them on the first Sunday of each month. Well worth a look in..... they also served snacks of chips and pizza!! All the staff at this establishment are extremely friendly and the dog is lovely too!!

Room Tip: Do not accept room 4

We stayed here for 2 nights as a birthday treat for my partners birthday. We stayed in room 4 which was big, more like an apartment. It was overall clean, however it could do with a new carpet and the windows cleaned.
The Breakfast was adequate, although some fruit and yogurt would have been nice. All local produce eggs etc was nice.
We ate in the restaurant once during our stay and the food was good.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful including the dog Hank.
The location is ideal for visiting places on the east coast. Its right on the A12, but because the buildings are built around the courtyard you cannot hear the traffic.

Room Tip: Room 4 is large and you can't hear the traffic.

Very spacious room almost like an apartment, but unfortunately the hot water in the shower wasn't working. Friendly staff. Great breakfast with lots of locally sourced produce. Good proximity to lots of coastal attractions.

My husband & I went with our friends recently to the plough and it was lovely! The food was delicious, although mine & my friends could have been slightly hotter.... I had the belly pork and it was delicious! The guy that owns the pub was really lovely & nothing was too much trouble. The waitress was very friendly too. will definitely be back!

My partner Wendy & myself stayed for just one night, we had an excellent meal with really good house wine the staff were friendly & very attentive. The room itself was spacious, quiet, & the beds were very comfortable.

Room Tip: If possible get room 3, its the one facing away from the main road & therefore quiet & dark.

My husband and I have just returned from a 3 night break, we were only staying 2 nights but extended for an extra night. After a tough year with my husbands health, it was like a breath of fresh air. When we arrived we had a very warm and friendly welcome from Dan and Hank the friendly well trained Labrador. The accommodation was comfortable, the food was wonderful and I hate to say it, but we are very critical, as we both enjoy cooking and are often disappointed, but Mark, the Chef, produced fantastic food every single time. We weren't planning on eating there every night but we had no need to go anywhere else. All of the staff were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. This break was originally booked for my daughter and her partner but she couldn't make it because of work commitments and we stepped in to take the break, which we are very glad that we did. Thank you Dan, Mark, Henry and Hank we've had a great time and will certainly be back.
