My husband and I stayed here last week. It was superb from the moment we walked through the front door. The hotel is funky and quirky with eyecatching things at every turn. Nothing is "normal" from the upside down typewriters mounted on the wall to the chandelier suspended by a block and tackle. The bedroom was absolutely immaculate and equipped...

We recently stayed a night at the Oddfellows which we largely enjoyed. The place is busy with all manner of guests, so really quite bustling which is fun. The rooms were very comfortable, the bar and outdoor area too.

4 hours later and still full from a delicious afternoon tea and the gluten free menu just as lovely as the other; roast beef was beautiful on the sandwiches, macaroons to die for and the best gluten free scones ever.

My friend and I went for the promotional afternoon tea at £29.50 for 2 including sparkling wine. The service was impeccable and the sandwiches, scones and cakes just divine. Absolutely faultless and highly recommended. Well done Oddfellows

Lovely sandwiches and brilliant scones. The cake selection was quirky, fitting with the theme of the hotel, and delicious. Not too heavy, so we could actually finish the afternoon tea without packing up some of it to eat later. When we arrived, they remembered me from booking earlier in the week; they offered us a choice of two tables in...

Our elder son and his fiancee paid for me and my wife to stay at this place for one night including dinner.

Just returned from an afternoon food and drinks at Oddfellows having not been here for at least 10 years. Can honestly say the food and drinks were excellent matched by excellent customer service (staff with smiles which goes along way) and great atmosphere. We picked from the afternoon set menu which offers you 2 course for £20 or 3 courses...

Me and my friend stayed in the Caldicot cottage on a January escape offer. We were allowed to leave our luggage early and return for check in.
