6/10 Good

Run down and needs TLC
Had a 1 night stay..the main building would be stunning if the owners pumped money into it..big georgian mansion that's now a indian restaurant..We were given keys to no17 a room in the converted stables outside, on entering the room was small but ample but straight away we noticed the carpet hadnt been hoovered and it was old and needed a good shampoo...the bathroom was clean but the rest could do with some tlc...not the worst place ive stayed but not the best either..We thought the 10.30 checkout was a bit harsh...supposedly for cleaning but there was no signs of that in there..dusty sideboards etc..cleaner needs sacking.

8/10 Very good

It was good, my room was in the out buildings but it was cosy and I think it had been freshly painted. I was on the first floor but the floor was really cheeky so I'm guessing the guests down stairs wouldn't be that happy. Over all a good stop over.

2/10 Poor

I was stood waiting for 15 mins to check in whilst the owner talked to her husband at the front desk. She did call for someone to come in the end as her conversation with husband was more important. The music off a live band mad it impossible to sleep. I special booked in due to traveling and needed rest.

4/10 Fair

No Internet service, TV signal weak. First night woken up at 2 am by people outside talking loudly and going in and out of rooms which lasted for at least 2 hours. Hotel did apologise but did not seem to care and was not offered compensation. The pub meal I had the first night the Chicken was so dry, so generally a bad stay
