Positive Reviews


Very quaint building

This is an incredibly historic building, and you can see that the place must have some stories to tell. It's a wonderfully quaint inn, and the owners have done their best to maintain the character of the property when refurbishing.


Attentive staff

The people that work here pay close attention to their guests, and you only have to ask if you have even the slightest of requests. They are more than willing to help you out and are great for local advice and tips.


Generous portions

The food served here is the standard pub fare that you'd expect from a traditional inn. It's filling, and there are no surprises. Some guests were particularly impressed by the breakfasts but less so by the evening meals.

Negative Reviews


Very busy area

This seems like it might be a quiet and relaxing place to stay but the place is surrounded by train tracks and busy roads so beware that you may have a bit of a noise issue at certain times during the day. It's right at the station, but you have to walk the long way around which takes twenty minutes.


Food is overpriced for what it is

The food isn't terrible, but it is certainly overpriced for what it is. There are some guests that even suggested that their soup was from a can and that their main course was reheated. Not what you expect at that price.


Poorly designed upper rooms

The loft rooms are perfect for children or short adults but if you are of average height then forget using the shower and mind you head when walking around the room. It's not worth the money the stay in a place that you have to mind your head in.
