Handy stop off point, worth staying.
Nothing bad to report, the pub was nice and the staff member very polite.
The room was clean but basic, there was plenty of tea, coffe, sugar and milk pots. The bed was firm but comfortable. It felt like you were staying at your nans spare room.
After a long day travelling to the RIAT and leaving home at 3.00 a.m. it was nice to get somwhere close by, in fact it's only just off the next exit.
Worth sataying and very convenient.
The Jovial Monk
Very very basic accommodation above a very busy and extremely noisy public house, our room was above the smoking shelter, we stayed for two nights No towels in room, took 4 hours to get towels.
Tea mugs were dirty and stained, shower was next to useless room not cleaned or refreshed so again had to ask for towels, I asked the manageress why the room had not been cleaned, bin emptied bed made and her answer was we do not enter the room whilst guests are staying. Manager was so keen to take our money as soon as we walked in the door, did not bother to show us to room or explain anything about the accommodation - one our worst hotel experiences.
