Guest reviews for The Pennyfarthing Hotel

4 out of 5

Useful location

Pros: Great location in the middle of the high street. The staff were all very friendly. The air conditioning was really welcome.
Cons: The decor is very drab, it needs updating.
Location: Nice pub nearby - The Highwayman? - for a late night craft g&t. We arrived late but there are loads of restaurants if we had wanted to eat.
We arrived late evening to avoid the traffic - we were going to a birthday lunch next day. Secure parking, friendly welcome and we were taken to our room. The room was nothing special - dark green walls and stripy carpet. It definitely needs an update. However everything was there - tea and coffee, air conditioning! Good size digital TV, very nice shower and fluffy towels.
