Seemed very disorganised. I can only assume it is under new management. The room was better than I expected, very clean with fresh clean towels and biscuits on the tea tray. The stairs to the rooms are very steep and I would not recommend for children or older adults.The breakfast was very good, just like a breakfast cooked at home,...

Like faulty towers. Owners were away and the cook was left in charge. Trying to run a kitchen, assist new foreign staff behind the bar and check people in. First room we was shown to had a broken bed and the second room had not been made up or cleaned. Housekeeper was very rude and kept arguing with the Cook...

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. We obviously sympathize with the situation you encountered on your arrival which was due to our head housekeeper not turning in for work on that day due to illness, which meant our programme of having all rooms ready was running late. However we did speak to you very early the...

New management did so well. We were a big party but we were treated extremely well. The food was top notch and definitely better than previous years. The staff were great. I wish them all the best in their new venture.

Popped in with family for a late sunday lunch. Staff were friendly helpful and informative. Relaxed atmosphere and roomy with plenty of tables with chairs and a bar area. Food was reasonably priced and was ok.

Room was very basic. Carpet was dirty, shower and toilet filthy. No heating, apart from an old electric heater. Arrived early evening, I complained and was told that they were fully booked and had no other room available. I rang around for another hotel, with no luck. Staff cleaned the room, while I waited. Absolutely appalling. Breakfast very basic. Tv...

Thank you kindly for taking the time to post your comments which are noted. However there are glaring inaccuracies contained within as we do have unbelievable warm central heating to the extent that sometimes our guests complain it's too warm!, check in times to our rooms is 1400 and our housekeepers are very conscious to have rooms ready for our...

The staff were very pleasant, the bedroom ceiling has water stains and in places the ceiling paper looks as though it's about to come down, barely enough room between the bed and the wall to get to the shower and loo. The shower is held together with silicone, basically the bedroom and shower room need complete refurbishment. Bedroom No 1....

Stayed in this hotel initially they tried to put me in a dank dusty and damp smelling room with no tv reception . I objected strongly and the alternative room was light clean and airy. The meal was ok and cheap Breakfast was fine ok for a quick stop but nothing spectacular

Haven't been very impressed in the past,but the new managers Peter & Katherine are doing a great job with standards and atmosphere. Very helpful and professional, breakfast was really good as well. Here's to a new era at The Bacon Arms.

Under new management, the Bacon Arms is a place on the up - spotlessly clean, comfortable, excellent breakfast, classy hospitality and an above average pint in the welcoming bar. Having visited here before in its' previous incarnation, I am genuinely elated by the massive improvement that the new management have brought with them. I had a single room and it...

Spot on location , just a walk from the town centre and river. The bed was comfy and had coffee / tea / biscuits etc. Added bonus were the two bottles of water ( which is something we usually forget to take back to the room ) Parking at the rear was very handy but make sure you register your...
