    Very good

    Good location, friendly staff, clean rooms.

    Every room was taken up with people eating. Great log fires, but you could not relax around them because there was tables and chairs for eating in front. Not a place to go if you only want a drink which was a shame.

    Good

    Good value at your price of £65 but not at their list price of £120+. Dinner menu is very good & locally sourced but the staff fear the new group that owns them is going to standardise the menu thereby downgrading their good local reputation, etc

    Again, - Good value at your price of £65 but not at their list price of £120+. Lunch & even bar food only served from 12 - 2 pm, breakfast only for 1 hour, etc. The staff are upset that they are now part of a group that appears to be trying to standardise them & the result is downgrading & penny-pinching ! For example, they are told to only put 2 tea bags, 2 coffee sachets & 2 sugars per double room. Guests always ask for more and are given them willingly with an apology. The Breakfast menu is pathetic by hq direction as it itemises " one mushroom " & " half a tomato " ! - although happily they do not count out the baked beans per portion - maybe Heniz 57 ?!

    Very good room, old world charm, massive inglenooks.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    The atmosphere of a historic inn and the food which was a class above the usual hotel fare.

  • 6.6
    Good

    The location and proximity to places of interest.

    It was a bit tired and fraced at the edges and lacked some of the little touches of luxury appropriate to a hotel in this price range.

    It was a wonderfull hotel, could not fault in anyway. Exelent

  • 7.4
    Very good

    I felt very comfortable there as a single person.

    My steak, ordered medium, came well done. Breakfast was also pre-cooked and therefore dry. The shower in my single bedroom was much too low for any normal person.

    Very good

    The history and actual building. Beautiful. The courtyard. The food was good too! Staff generally very good. Only one a bit sharp on reception - and it wasn't Sue, who was great.

    I found the fact that the Newspaper was not put outside my bedroom door strange so I complained twice and on both occasions I was apologised to by reception. However, n-oone told me that the papers are put outside the dining room at breakfast with peoples names on them. I didn't see them!

    Fabulous

    comfort and friendliness.

    decor a bit jaded in bedrooms

  • 9.2
    Superb

    beautiful historic building, cosy ambience and lovely large room(22) with a magnificent comfortable kingsize bed

    the only slight negative was that it is regulalry used for weddings and they seem to have complete run of the restaurant and bar areas. Their music went on till late but was not too much of a problem.

    helpful staff.comfortable bed,

    room was at the front of the hotel and was noisey,also had a function on in the evening so could not use the lounge.Will stay again,but will ask for a room at the back as it will be quieter.

    Superb

    Very welcoming staff and very good food with sensibly priced wines of above average quality

    Very old world with an excellent ambiance

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The food was above average. The staff were very good particularly the waitresses in the evening and at breakfast.

    The bedroom- The Melford- was abit too quaint for us! A bed not on the level and a shower where my head nearly touched the ceiling did not add up to £120 a night!
