Stayed at the fountain back in the summer but only just reviewed this as i have been sent a reminder of our stay by TripAdvisor . The price we paid was £80 for the night but i think that was over priced for the quality. The room was small and in our bathroom there was still toothbrushes in the bathroom...

Stopped at this pub for a meal on a dull day in winter. I've eaten here a number of times but always in the summer and always outside and it was always fine. On this occasion we ate inside and it wasn't particularly busy but the tables hadn't been wiped from the previous diners and there was actually still some...

Have stayed here 3 times over the last over the last two years and have never been disappointed. The rooms although not big are clean, nicely furnished and the beds are very comfortable. Have always found the staff friendly and chatty.... Even on New Years morning when clearly suffering from a late New Year's Eve partying. The hotel is conveniently...

We were there for the weekend, and found the place to be a great find. Right off the ferry on the main street, but quiet at night, and cozy. Very friendly and helpful staff, room on the small side, but nice a clean. Very comfortable bed and good pillows. Hairdryer and tea-making facilities in the room. Old building, but well-maintained....

We arrived to be met by the assistant manager who was very helpful. I got a bit worried when the entrance area was not very clean and also the staircase leading to our room needed a good vacuum. The same could be said for our room, which was not as clean as it should be, and it was small as...

Stayed in June this year. Overpriced, unclean, badly in need of refurbishing. Although a period property very poorly maintained and dirty. First room refused, second not much better. Had to ask for toilet and sink to be cleaned. Staff friendly, breakfast ok. Unfortunately, some of the photos taken have not shown up the poor condition of the room, so I...
