Very tired rooms.. Extremely small.. Only 3/4 size bed.. Pre war wardrobe .. If this was a superior room I am just relieved I didn't book a standard one .. This was just not normal Best W'n standard.. Thankfully only 1 night and never to be repeated
The village was beautiful, the hotel was ok.
The food was not very good, yet expensive. It was also noisy for such a quiet idilic location.
Only stayed one night and was out for most of it, the look of the general hotel was nice and comfortable the bar was cosy and welcome looking (but I didn't get a chance to visit it).
My room was very small and very tired , it could have done with an up date, the shower ran off the taps but was was warm and for my needs and for one night it was fine.
The main areas downstairs were large, clean and comfortable. Location is fantastic in this lovely town. The building itself is attractive and seems a lot more 'genuine' than other chain hotels
Frankly the bed was quite uncomfortable. I also found the bathroom facilities a little shabby; shower lacked decent power etc.
The hotel is extremely comfortable with a welcoming bar and a quiet lounge area. The log-burning stoves are both effective and spectacular. Breakfasts are freshly-cooked and of excellent quality. I enjoyed the food served in the restaurant, which also has a great ambiance. The friendliness and efficiency of the staff are outstanding. When I had an upsetting health problem (which turned out not to be serious) the response, particularly from Ken (the manager), was overwhelmingly kind and helped me to cope with a very stressful situation. A car was sent to collect me from the hospital where I had been treated, and no charge was made for the service.
Though the hotel itself is set well-back from the road and has plenty of parking, access on foot does require care and patience because you need to cross a very busy road at a very awkward junction. (There are pedestrian-controlled lights, though motor-traffic is their highest priority.)
location food facilities car parking - were all very good
the room was thick with dust on the beams and by the dormer windows one lamp had no bulb and we reported it but nothing happened bathroom extractor fan was noisy & toilet was a problem flushing
The bed and bed coverings I found to be uncomfortable and a lot of traffic noise coming through the old wooden 'sash' style windows.
We had areally nice stay, the room was comfortable, pillows always seem to be an issue with Hotels, but these were ok.... We had a delicious dinner of local lamb which was perfect!! Breakfast next morning was very good, and the Staff were lovely..thank you
the plumbers renovating an adjacent room
open fires were good and the staff were friendly and fairly efficient
the whole hotel decor is very tired and dated in desperate need of a refit. The was OK but not very imaginative and the menu was printed on a dirty sheet of A4 paper. The bed was hard, and overall not good value for money, expensive for what you get
Friendly staff allowed us to check in early Child friendly Clean rooms
Quite expensive paid 111 for one night we provided our own travel cot and breakfast wasn't invluded
I liked the individuality of the rooms the breakfast was lovely the gym and spa were very acceptable, not brilliant but far better than many, needs more free weights etc. the staff were great as was the overall atmosphere
very little to complain about at all
Cooked breakfasts were lovely and beautifully presented. Staff were all very helpful.
Excellent food and staff
Pillows hard damp in room and cleanliness not up to scratch
Good location with plenty of parking at the rear of the hotel
Cramped parking at the front of the hotel.
