10/10 Exceptional

This was a last minute business trip. I was travelling alone and the staff were extremely welcoming i felt comfortable eating alone in the pub both nights staff were amazing very friendly. The room was lovely very warm spacious, food really nice, i will definitely stay again. The only thing to be aware of is getting to the pub the first night my sat nav took me along a dirt track it was pitch black and i genuinely thought my sat nav was taking me to a dead end in a field haha but keep following it and you do come to the pub. My second night i came back via the main road which was much easier to navigate.

4/10 Fair

Lovely pub, stay fell short of expectations - COLD
Arrived at the nice pub after a long day working in a cold factory. Staff were welcoming and showed me to my room, which was a big L shaped loft. The room was cold but I noticed the thermostatic valves were closed and opened them up to hopefully provide much needed heat while I went for dinner. I would like to point out that I had a very bad head cold and felt extra run down on this trip. Dinner was excellent, I had ribs and apple crumble, it was quite a wait, but worth it - both were exceptional, even with my cold affecting taste. The pub had a nice big fireplace but unfortunately it wasn't on, so i was left wishing I hadn't left my jumper in my room while waiting for food. I still hadn't been able to warm up properly from work and feeling rough.. By the time I got to my room it was nearly 10pm and it was still cold. I decided a nice hot shower is what I needed before bed. Unfortunately the water wasn't particularly hot and went completely cold on me after less than a minute. I got out of the freezing shower and walked in to the freezing room feeling worse than when I got here. I found a portable fan heater in the wardrobe and put that on to stop myself shivering. I considered ringing the emergency number provided but as I wanted to go to sleep anyway it wouldn't be worth while. In the morning I still had no heating and the water was luke-warm so now shower again. Breakfast was only from 8am, underwhelming and undercooked to my taste. Favourite part was my little heater.

Happy points but some details need attention
A couple of irksome points. No drama just annoying. Basin had small crack. Very sharp, cut my finger. Window blinds needed attention both broken. Tv control not working.
