A simple one night stay was perfect.
A simple one night stay in the family room was exactly as hoped for. Lovely room, welcoming host, comfortable beds, lots of tea and coffee in the room. Bar with a wide slection of local brews, plus international selection. De to the nature of our visit we were unable to sample the menus for dinner and b reakfast, but what was seen looked very good'

I'm so glad they had availability!
We booked this place last minute and we're so glad they had availability. From start to finish the staff at The Brown Horse Inn treated us like we were part of the family. Room was modern and came with a great view. Dinner was absolutely amazing - we had the shin of beef with a recommended bottle of red which I'm still dreaming about. The breakfast was also one of the best I've had. We will definitely be back!

8/10 Very good

Good but not perfect.
Excellent beds and shower.. Room size V.G.. Food excellent. BUT our stay let down by a few details. ROOM 3 ...had no shelf in bathroom for toiletries etc. No table and socket for the kettle which had to be boiled on floor or at bedside. Kettle difficult to fill from wash basin tap There was inadequate hanging space and no hooks for outdoor coats. No alternative to duvet for beds (blanket option should be made available). Bedside and table drawers too small for clothes. The shower cubicle needs a wall mounted soap dish, the gel provided was not suitable for my wife's allergy. She had nowhere to put her soap.. Door to shower room needs oiling, noisy in middle of the night. ROOM 2 had no easy chair. These may seem small issues but made our stay less comfortable than it should have been. PLUS they are so easy to fix. 0.

3 day stay
Food was excellent, however not a great selection. Service and staff extremely efficient The only fault was the service of the room. On the first day i said to reception don't worry about cleaning the room just make the bed.Sadly that happened every day and we didn't get cups replaced or dirty glasses removed and no fill up of tea coffee etc.
