Beautiful building full of character in pretty village BUT such a disappointing stay.
Arrived approx 9pm no reception area so reported to bar staff three of which didn't have a clue as to how to check us in on the computer. Eventually after at least 15 mins another member came along and 'sorted' the problem - it seemed they knew we were due but couldn't find which number room we were booked into.Eventually we we were guided to our room in a pretty row of cottage type rooms. The room, bedding and bathroom were lovely. However we noticed there were no pillowcases on the pillows so my friend returned to the bar where a female member of staff appeared to have problems finding any. She returned shortly with two pillows which I assume came from a nearby vacant room and was most apologetic. We then noticed the tv remote control was nowhere to be found so off my friend went again back to the pub bar returning with the barman who was holding three different ones saying that the remote control for our TV had been stolen. Of course none of the three controllers worked so he proceeded to show us where we could 'feel' for the control buttons down the side which later my friend and I had to use the torch on our iPhone to see which button was which. We did however have a comfortable night's sleep in two lovely cosy beds.Come time for breakfast we walked into the main bar where there was no one to be seen, no tables laid for breakfast (we assumed we were the only guests at this time). There was one young lady in a back room hoovering and who did attend to us and asked what we wanted to eat.. We ordered coffee, full English toast and jam but were told there was no jam or marmalade available, only butter. The coffee from the machine was very strong and bitter so we asked if we could have more hot water and some more milk cartons. In spite of these additions we were unable to drink the coffee - obviously the girl hadn't been shown how to make a reasonable cup of coffee from the machine. She was a sweet pleasant girl and she obviously had done her best hence we left her a tip. When it came to checking out once again not a sign of any member of staff. We called and called and eventually a man appeared who told us that the manageress/owner was not available as she had gone to a wedding. He asked us if we could pay the bill with cash as he did not know how to use the card machine. We said 'no' . Fortunately between us we were able to use it and payment was made successfully. It turned out he was the chef!. During this time there was a continual beeping sound coming from a back room which neither staff knew how to stop which was very irritating while we ate breakfast.
All in all not the most brilliant of stays and sadly the Bull needs many improvements made all round if it is going to continue as a B&B. I would not recommend the Bull to anyone unless they are willing to experience a Faulty Towers stay!!
