    Its like home, comfortable. The staff are very friendly. Shall use it again whenever we are in the location.

    Location if anything but it is in a village , quiet and within easy distance of Rugby, Coventry Birmingham etc.

    Location was convenient for business trip. Room was good size as was ensuite bathroom.

    Decor is tired - you can tell that at some point the owners had passion for this place but the motivation appears to have ebbed away. Small things count like rusty shower curtain rail, poorly painted walls, worn carpets. I think the line is ‘trying to provide the appearance of an old country inn but old doesn’t mean shabby uncared for. Attention to detail is important so strand of hair on the shower wall needs to be removed etc. Little things are important.

    Room was perfect for my needs. Bed was comfortable and shower was excellent. Staff welcoming and good breakfast

    Room was a bit ‘tired’ and a plastic shower curtain was a bit ‘seventies!!

    The food is to die for. Beautifully presented cooked to perfection. It’s one of our favourite places to eat

    The mattresses in the rooms are a bit tired now need changing

    Staff were friendly enough. It’s nice and quiet.

    I got to my room and it was totally freezing. The radiator was switched off. I turned it on but even hours later it hadn’t adequately heated the room. I used the hair dryer to warm the room a bit. I had to sleep with multiple layers on. Lights didn’t work in the bathroom and the carpets are seriously worn through in places. I am not massively fussy about hotels but this felt like a £30 a night hotel not £70. Sorry. Further I ate in the restaurant and the food was poor and very expensive. Sorry but if you charge gourmet food prices for a burger and chips it should be nice. It wasn’t.
