Lovely cosy hotel
Room ridiculously small for the price. We were supposed to be in a comfort room but were actually in the tiny Snug room.Also noisy at the front of the hotel with poorly closing non double glazed windows.

4/10 Fair

Really disappointed, ceiling coming off above shower, black mould in the shower. Kettle had yellow liquid in. room had no air conditioning and the window had a lock restricting opening, so room redicoulously hot. Didn't sleep at all. Got up at 6am and left. Restaurant all deserts came with ice cream but they had non. Had to complain about my drink. Awful. Shame the hotel around the corner was full

What a lovely little inn! We really enjoyed staying here. Our room was decorated nicely and the inn is located conveniently in the heart of Stow. The staff were exceptional! The restaurant was excellent and there are lots of areas to enjoy a pint from the bar. Highly recommend this inn!
