This pub/hotel is a beautiful little place to go but the drink is far too over priced, the toilets hardly work so you either have to hold on or hover over the broken seats, unfortunately I will not be going back to relieve any stress with a glass or two from here although I like the place I don't like...

Hotel room needed good clean, including bathroom.Room cramped to say the least . Stair carpets all needed cleaning. Earplugs required to sleep at midnight due to weekly live music. No breakfast but notice on room door still stated breakfast times! And all this for an extortionate £63......To be fair we were warned.......but feel we should warn others.

First night, the shower didn't work, 2nd night moved rooms,room stank of smoke and was filthy, Manager showed us all the other rooms, all of which were disgusting! Owner said we didn't understand "quirky" he was rude and refused a refund. Absolutely awful! They really should not be allowed to use the word "hotel"

We have stayed in a lot of hotels over the years, from big chains to independent hotels, this hotel has to be the loveliest boutique place we have stayed. The staff were welcoming and friendly.
