Dated and old fashioned
I was disappointed to find mould on the walls, the room was a very small twin bedroom with sink in the actual bedroom.
Shower would have benefitted from a proper screen rather than a curtain which quickly attaches itself to you!. The mattress was sagging all down one side I think due to the fact the actual room is on a slight slope. I could feel the springs also which made for a poor nights sleep. The old fashioned pine furniture looked dated and dusty in places. Towels were small and you need to remember to take your own toiletries and hairdryer as not supplied. Breakfast served between 7.30- 8.30 so don't expect a lie in if you want this. Breakfast basic but ok apart from sausage which tasted like it had been microwaved. Staff I saw were pleasant.
The Cottage Inn
Nice B&B, excellent value, pleasant staff.
Recommend as good quality budget accomodation
Twin bedroom experience
The pub was friendly, helpful and ok food.
The room was out of the 1950s and completely let the establishment down. Damp, faded, overcrowded with furniture etc
Over night stop
The staff were friendly the room was very basic & small.
Wardrobe doors do not close so had to push bed up against them so you didn't walk into them. Then there was nowhere to put clothes no chair only a tiny stool that had the clean towels on which did not fit under dressing table. No central heating so there was a convector heater but if you moved it the legs fell off. The very old & dated bathroom smells of damp & the wash basin was in the bedroom. There was no hooks / shelf/ or towel rail so no where to put towels when u showered. However the breakfast was good.
Good food but accommodation very basic
The Cottage Inn is a very popular local pub - very busy and with a good atmosphere.
We had dinner and breakfast at the pub and the food was good - not gourmet but popular home cooked meals. Service was friendly and good. Because the food was good we returned the next day and took two elderly aunts to lunch - again the pub was almost full so is well known locally for inexpensive food. When we went up to our room we were a bit disappointed - for the same price as a Travelodge or Premier Inn we had a very small double room and en suite bathroom. The bathroom was clean but the sink was tiny . The room was clean and the bed was comfortable but it was really small and the bathroom had seen better days. The friendliness of the staff and good food made it a place we would consider staying again - but the accommodation was disappointing.
Handy for Stoneleigh events
Friendly affordable and convenient for any event at Stoneleigh as is a short 10 minute drive door to door.
Budget accommodation at B&B prices.
It looked like a great pub stay on the site, but just your archetypal pub accommodation.
Think Acorn Antiques - and you would be along the right lines. Wouldnt take much to make it feel so much more welcoming. Room had signs of damp. Shower shoved in. the wardrobe. A floor that was so creaky I tried not to move around to avoid waking up the other guests. Almost raw bacon in the morning and coffee that was obviously cheap instant and undrinkable.
Honestly, a Traveldoge is only a few quid more, but streets ahead.
You get what you pay for
the pub and room are exactly as described.
Small room and facilities but exactly as we expected. Perfectly adequate for an overnight stop and very good value good served in pub.
Our welcome was very friendly and our evening meal was lovely, the room was comfortable and we both slept well, the breakfast was more than we are used to and was excellently prepared.
The lovely lady that served our breakfast was a mine of information about places we wished to see and very friendly. We enjoyed ourselves, much better than a travelodge!
Reminded me of staying at my Gran's
The staff were not welcoming.
The room had a musky smell, like damp dogs, and was dirty - hairs in the bed. Had one pint, thinking a pub would get that right, but tipped it away as it tasted like vinegar. Can't think of any redeeming features really - won't be going back.
