Really enjoyed my stay at The Chequers Inn. Very friendly staff and a beautiful location. The room was well appointed and the management had thought of everything. The English Breakfast was excellent. For the price of a Premier Inn why would you not stay here?

My partner and I stayed here last weekend, and had a fantastic experience. We had the smallest room, and yes, it was tiny. But, and it's a big but, I've never before stayed in a room as lovely! Although it's small, it doesn't feel like it at all. The owners have made very clever use of the space, and so it actually feels spacious whilst still being cosy. There is absolutely nothing to criticise at all. Everything was spotlessly clean, the decor immaculate, large fluffy towels, high quality toiletries, splendidly powerful shower.. the list could go on! We were especially impressed by 'proper' mugs; no piddly little tea cups made out of commercial grade stoneware here!

The food was amazing too. Nicely sized portions, if anything erring on the huge side of things! There was a huge choice of food for dinner, even though we arrived back at the inn quite late in the evening. Breakfast was a serve yourself affair, with unrestricted access to croissants, toast, cereal, porridge etc, not to mention the full english breakfast carvery. It's worth noting that locals appeared to get up early and come for the breakfast carvery; we made it downstairs around 9am, and people were already eating! Everything we ate, including what we had for dinner the night before, tasted freshly made with no cook/chill/reheat flavour at all. This coming from two food nazis... we expected to find decent pub grub, and were exceedingly pleased to find out we got more than we bargained for!

The atmosphere of the place is also brilliant. During the day; it was bustling with family and all adult groups and so obviously a little noisy. That being said, it was a friendly, happy, chilled kinda noise; not in the least distracting. In the evening, we were made to feel welcome and not made to feel excluded by the locals who obviously drink and eat there with some regularity, given the friendly relationship they appeared to have with the owner and other members of staff. The owner himself spent some time talking with us, and seemed like a lovely chap, as did all the other members of staff we encountered.

In essence, as I said above, there is not one single thing which could be criticised about this place- it's fabulous. For sure we'll be back, and I'm even trying to find a sneaky way to include it in my honeymoon!
