    Overnight stop

    The room was clean, but clearly dated..The bathroom door could not open properly as the toilet was in the way, this resulted in us both walking into the door before we got wise to it!. also when using the toilet, the toilet roll was on the wall way above your head! I’m not particularly tall and had a job to even reach it!!..The mattress tho lovely and soft also moved ( rocked) with every movement my partner made!!I did not get much sleep. on the plus side, all the staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. our evening meal was delicious as was breakfast. The room itself was lovely and warm, we had plenty of car parking and the pub had a fabulous Our ambience.

    Bathroom very dated and tired. Radiator in bathroom didn't work so was cold in there, plus shower swung from hot to cold, so we didn't have a shower. Room was ok aside from the heating was on timer, according to reception when we asked because it was cold. It went off at night, so was very cold at bedtime and throughout the night.Very carnivore based breakfast. Wouldn't stay again.

    I’d question the rating of Fabulous 8.8

    Fabulous 8.8 is misleading. A perfectly okay hotel but tired bedrooms. My issue is that the stay ends being disappointing when you’re expecting something similar to other hotels which deserve fabulous 8.8.
