Getting there.
Small room with low beams. Clean and plenty of towels. Attached pub good pub dinner but non cooked breakfast options limited and therefore pricey. Cooked breakfast was good. Looks like they are updating and trying hard. Free plentiful parking.

Please trying harder
Well really booked on the quick with several not bad reviews and it was just bed only needed just as a base, Dirty dining area with doors needing to be wiped to show they were once white, musty smell throughout, dusty with dead insects. For an old building and new manager, must give her a break but if you employ family and friends and then come into work after them ( believe me they through a duster over things) no training courses required to push hoover/duster Breakfast was nice size but did not get offered hot drinks, dusty ledges, Route to room had torn tatty wall paper Rooms were a good size bed comfortable tv to small Grouting in the two rooms needed to be cleaned as going black or mouldy Bath panel damaged, blind over window not hiding occupants enough. Situated in an area close to sites we wanted to see so real choice of venue. Kids play area had broken toys Staff spent most of time outside or at most opportunities to vape and socialise. We booked in over the weekend just gone 26/27/28 august leaving bank holiday Monday We could not speak to anyone in person when we come back on Sunday night 2030 hours as the bar area was closed and no staff, Monday morning we had to leave early and had to post the keys as no staff. Just a shame that the staff appeared not to have a clue on running an inn but could serve in bar area To the manager get your staff to look at every room and list the little things you wouldn’t want to see on a snagging list.
