3rd visit and I'll be back

I can't see what reviewers moan about..ok, the price has crept up a bit and the guy behind the bar on Friday was nothing short of thick, but other than that it's fine.

The food is good, breakfast excellent, rooms warm and sheets clean - and quiet. Overall, the staff are helpful and cheerful - except Mr Friday, who despite being there 5 months didn't know where our room was, couldn't work out what a special steak night deal meant and didn't know what beer he was serving. I'll be going again.

Not the best!

Clean room and nice ensuite with good shower and hot water.

Used only one towel 1st night, so folded unused towels and put on window sill. On my return to the room, I found all 4 towels slung over the rail, so I had no idea which were clean. The mattress was so worn that the coil springs were sticking through, although the sheets were clean. I couldn't lock myself into the room at night, although the key worked from the outside. I put a chair against the door as a precaution. Money was charged to my credit card FIVE days before I arrived.

The staff were pleasant but overstretched, especially the barman.

Pleasant owner, extraordinary housekeeping!

Very basic room, only stayed for a wedding elsewhere so was just about acceptable.

Owner very polite and obliging, booked a taxi for us on request. Housekeeping were extremely rude, unlocking our room and entering well before check out, and doing the same to our friend along the corridor. On check in and check out, guests must navigate a mountain of towels and sheets thrown down the stairs without breaking their necks - hard to do when they cover the first four bottom steps and most of the hallway, and especially difficult with luggage in your hands. Never seen anything like it!

Affordable accomodation

Perfect with the own restaurant and bar in the hotel, because it's not so close to arestaurant nearby.

Nice quiet place

Nice hotel, just off of a main road but far enough away for it not to be loud.

Food in the bar was very good too

Nothing to write home about

The accommodation was just passable.

The TV antenna was an indoor arrangement and inadequate for even half reasonable reception.

There were no spare power sockets, had to unplug a bedside lamp and scramble behind a bedside table to charge my phone. The bath tap leaked the whole time. The English Breakfast was good but all four of the various steak dishes were off the menu on the first night so I dined elsewhere for the rest of my three day stay. The lounge and Wi-Fi area is cleared and locked when the bar closes.

a spooky place

fancy arriving axt a &B and finding an empty hotel.

No one at the reception, just a brief note left on the desk to tell you your room number and breakfast time. this was very unpleasant and had we not paid we would have left the place straight away. In themorning we had tolook for the dining room, call someone by banging on the counter, here again, quite pleasant. Breakfast was probably planned for hard labourers...we just wish we had never chosen this place and we won't recommend it to anyone

OK if your part of the travelling community

Monies were taken for accommodation before arrival not part of the booking agreement .

What if I had intended to pay via different card/method ?
