“Excellent Room and Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2006

I would definately stay here again. The room I booked was massive with a queen size bed and large ensuite bathroom. The price was great as well £138 for 2 people for 2 nights with breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar food and restaurant food was delicious with lots of choice but we couldnt eat it all there was such a huge serving.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2006

The Old Well Inn lives up to it's description of a comfortable 17th Century Coaching Inn. It is everything you would expect of a period building complete with wonky, creaky floors and a splendid atmosphere. Our room was large with a four poster bed. There was a spacious bathroom, but no shower. A pleasant bar area and restaurants, although they didn't inspire confidence. If you like peace and quiet ask for a room at the back. Ours was on the front on the main street with heavy traffic noise and quite a few drunks making their way home. The breakfast was uninspiring. The usual fried stuff but left in the dining room under lamps. The tea and coffee was out of large flasks and left a lot to be desired. service was by an unsmiling young girl who seemed resentful at being dragged away from the paper she was reading. All in all though, not bad value for £60 bed and breakfast.

  • Liked — character of the building
  • Disliked — noise, food service
  • Stayed July 2006, travelled as a couple
