    Maximum level of dirty I would accept

    This was probably the maximum of dirty room I would accept without walking out, I don’t expect a hotel room to be forensically clean but the carpet in our room needs pulling up, burning and deposed of as a bio hazard! There were a few hairs in the bed and shower and sooo many cobwebs but you are in the country. We liked the good amount of hand and body wash you get, it’s nice stuff too. The milk sachets were mouldy though. Staff at dinner were overwhelmed but handled it really well, they were very nice but for the price you pay there’s a huge lack of attention to detail. I wouldn’t pay to stay here again as i think it’s al very overpriced for what it is. Food was nice but very expensive for what it is. We got a good special offer price but I’d be livid if we’d have paid anymore.

    One night to see friend Excellent

    We had a lovely night at the Running Horse. Staff were all very careful about safety measures. Our room was spotless and we had a very nice meal. There was a little confusion over breakfast but was soon sorted out, everyone is getting used to new ways of doing things. we shall return.
