      Individual guest reviews

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        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 ?!

        Breakfast was good

        Room badly needing redecoration.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        Very good room, old world charm, massive inglenooks.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

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

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        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.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

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

      • Single
        7.4

        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.

      • Single
        7.0

        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!

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        comfort and friendliness.

        decor a bit jaded in bedrooms

      • Couple
        9.2

        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.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        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.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        A delightful Hotel, well situated. Room was very nice. Restaurant was superb as was the Bar. Excellent staff - overall a very attractive Hotel and would definitely go there again.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

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

        Very old world with an excellent ambiance

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        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!

      • Group of friends
        2.4

        Leaving

        We waited 40mins for a so called full english breakfast.
