When guests checked in at this property, they were often pleasantly surprised by how warmly they were welcomed. That friendliness also tended to be shown by people who were frequenting the hotel's pub, but not necessarily staying in the property overnight.
The Wi-Fi is Free
Guests appreciated that the property provides complimentary Wi-Fi. Although that is a standard amenity in many places that offer accommodations, that's not always true in some traditional pubs. With that in mind, guests sometimes did not expect to get Wi-Fi with their stays, but were glad that assumption turned out to be wrong.
The Food is Delicious
Numerous reviews reflected the opinion that this establishment really shines when it comes to offering memorable cuisine. Some guests said the food served was a highlight of their time away from home, and would likely entice them to come back for future visits.
This was just a minor annoyance in most cases, but there was frequent feedback from guests who pointed out they wish something would be done about the noisy floorboards at the property. The issue seemed to persist throughout the property and was not just limited to one room, so you shouldn't worry you're the only occupant unintentionally being louder than desired.
Chef Not Always Available in the Mornings
From time to time, guests woke up and expected to be able to order breakfast but were told the chef was not available to make it. If you are planning on having breakfast at the property, it's worth confirming the chef will be working on the given morning.
Loud and Late-Running Karaoke
Guests were often kept awake by karaoke in the downstairs pub area. They said the volume level was very bothersome, and that the event sometimes went on until the wee hours of the morning.
