4/5 Good

Nice , country hotel with a sea food and champagne themed restaurant. Pleasant atmosphere and bar food .

Stayed 1 night in Jul 2019

4/5 Good

Comfortable, but nothing outstanding.

We didn't expect perfection from what is a room above a pub and clearly the owners are trying to do the best with what they have. The rooms (room 11) are small and the ensuite microscopic but they are clean and well cared for. Where the room falls short on are the things within control. For example, there is only one (ONE!) socket available for guest use in the room and that is at the furthest point from the bad. Had we required the supplemental electric heater there would have been no available sockets. Fortunately we had a power strip with us so we could plug in our cellphones to charge overnight. But, any room ought to have sufficient sockets for charging essential gadgets. A power-strip with a cord long enough to reach the side of the bed so that a cellphone could be used as an alarm is a basic requirement. Our meal was so-so and served sequentially so that even though we sat 6ft from the kitchen my wife's food was cold by the time mine was served. In Britain I expect concurrent serving, especially as we were the only two diners that rainy Monday night. The menu is basic pub-grub fare, which was all we needed, but since the advertising leads you to expect more, beware. There are two WiFi networks, the guest one and the private one. Ask for the password to the private one as the guest one is provided through a partner that requires too much private info. The staff, both during the evening and again in the morning, were friendly, approachable, and eager to please.
