We stayed a couple of nights and were made very welcome. The room was comfy and the bathroom big. We were able to sit outside for a drink in the tent in the garden which was nice. The food was good but we were the only ones in the restaurant on Saturday night which was weird! It was a great...

We are really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us recently. And that you missed some of our dreadful storms of late to be able to enjoy drinks in the garden. To be honest our restaurant is quiet some evenings although food is very good, according to the feedback we get, and we are also competitive on...

Stayed here for 3 nights for my sisters wedding and really enjoyed my stay. If you're looking for luxury, you won't find it, but if you want a lovely relaxing and friendly hotel with lots of character set in lovely surroundings, this is it. Tina and her staff work extremely hard to make your stay enjoyable and nothing is too...

Arrived on a Sunday evening not knowing what to expect. Really nice location and very tranquil. After check in I went to my room to be presented with a four poster bed that creaked and furniture of the same period, although I slept really well on it. Clean room and well appointed with accessories. My only recommendation would be having...

Room 6 in old stables very comfortable. We had driven from Wirral and were late arriving. The kitchen staff were most accommodating. There is outdoor seating . Ample free parking. Staff very kindly assisted us with booking Dartford crossing on line £ 2.50 each way. Tea and coffee facilities in room. Ghost Ship bottled beer.

Stayed here last night and am still hopping mad. I booked a room directly with the hotel a few weeks back. We were visiting friends in Littlebury and had been advised to book the Crown House. The lady assured us of the best available room and not to worry as everything would be in hand for a perfect stay. Due...

I am very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience when you stayed with us. I am concerned that you signed in under the wrong name, we ask guests to check their registration forms ,it is a legal requirement. If you had queried the wrong name on your registration form you would have had the room that was...

I have stayed here several times in the last couple of months because business brought me to the area. I prefer to stay at independent hotels when travelling as they have more soul but they can be a bit of a lottery.

I booked this through trip advisor (getaroom.com is on all the paperwork although it seems Expedia have also been involved in the booking) and when I arrived at the hotel they didn't have a reservation for me. The staff there were wonderful - they let me stay in a staff room otherwise I would have been completely stuck. Apparently they...
