“IT DOES NOT EVEN RATE 1 STAR”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2010

On arrival we found the car park on the opposite side of a fast stretch of the A361 road making it difficult for my disabled wife to cross. We then had to pay the total amount before being given the key. The access stairs were dark and steep, not what we were told. The room was very small, dingy and smelly, too small for even a chair to sit on. The bed was very hard with shabby bedding, how ever the towels were nice and white and clean. Breakfast - The coffee was undrinkable and we did not get any choice of food.

Like other guests that have reviewed I was asked to pay before even seeing the room. The bed was of extremely poor quality, I could feel all the springs of the matress and the pillows were solid lumps. I was sharing a twin room with my 12 year old son and he is a fab sleeper but he woke up upset that the bed was so uncomfortable. I tryed to pad out the matress for him using the blankets in the wardrobe, yuck, dirty. The en-suite smelled strongly of sewage which appeared to be coming from the bath plughole and there was a shower curtain that was far too long and laid on the bath floor, scanky or what?? it was slimy and disgusting. £54 for bed only, an absolute rip-off.

The foxhunters and bookings.com advertised four poster bed in which we stayed however was misleading as was a bad imitation four poster bed curtains were only half way round the bed and one curtain was dirty. The first thing we were asked to do was to pay for the room before we had even seen it, and we were not given any information on arrival, such as breakfast times and evening meal times we had to ask., staff seemed unfriendly at first . Shower in room 1 was poor, two complaints later to landlord who didnt take kindly to complaints, moved us to another room . Room 2 shower was just about bearable. The on site carpark as advertised was across the road in another car park, and to get to this and to the pub you had to cross a very busy main road to get to your car and also having to carry heavy luggage across a main road when checking in and out. This main road was quite noisy at nighttime when trying to sleep. The food was very good and reasonably priced , however this is the only positive comment to report about this pub. The rooms need modernising to a higher standard. Would not stay at this pub again.

The building is 300 years old so bearing this in mind the rooms were very well kept with the windows on the road side having second glazing added for noise abatement.
The staff and owners were very friendly and helpful at all times.
The breakfasts were plentiful and nice, so very good value, as were the evening meals.
Although this hotel is right on the side of a busy main road, most of the time you are unaware of this unless you go outside for air or a smoke.
I will certainly stay here again if I am in the near area.
A very enjoyable stay.

I wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy, if you go here for a stay, don't say I didn't warn you.
