Cosy Hotel
My wife and I had a very nice stay here. Food was delicious, room was clean and comfortable although small / awkward as it was a converted attic space.

Just right
Great place to stay, historic building quite wonky and quirky in places, staff we’re very helpful even popped to the shop to get some Soya milk for breakfast for me, food is great both ends of the day, can get busy in the evenings so book a table, live music Fridays till 11pm, parking is just around the corner with a free permit pass the bar staff provide

Good pub but needs a good deep clean.
The room was nice but the carpets need a clean as there was a bit of a smell. The staff were helpful but quite young and didn’t know the area well. The internet didn’t work and the tv has poor reception. Apart from that it was a good pub in a great location. With a good clean the place could be wonderful though.

Quite nice, friendly but breakfast needs improve
Quite nice hotel with friendly staff and large comfortable room. The shower handle broke down but was fixed quickly. Dinner was great. Breakfast wasn't that good and took forever to be served. Also they only start serving breakfast at 8.30 which is quite late for a family with children who wants to get outdoor in the mountains. Also no wifi in the room.
