“Very basic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

Nice welcome. Room very basic and very unclean. Cobwebs everywhere. Lots of noise from bar downstairs. Had a nice meal in the evening.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2011

We were welcomed with a smile (thanks Harriet!) and after eleven hours in the car due to M6 traffic chaos that was a terrific start! The room isn't modern, but this isn't a modern Travelodge type inn. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Down to the bar, where the range of drinks was good and well-priced (try the rioja and the pinot grigio), the atmosphere friendly and welcoming, and the French-styled food superb. If it's not the best French onion soup we've had, in the UK OR in France, it's so close the difference doesn't count. The pub is fairly small and a little out-of-the-way, but it's very well worth discovering.

Room Tip: Ask nicely at the bar!

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2011

Stayed in this Hotel (Should rename it hostel!) for a couple of nights
The room was small and in desperate need of decorating, it had wood chip wall paper that was peeling, the door felt very insecure and if someone pushed hard enough i reckon that it would have opened!
The TV was mounted on the wall, but too high up to watch from the bed. and to boil the kettle you had to pace it on the floor! Not a very safe thing to do!
On the plus side at least the water in the bathroom was hot, the cleanliness was to be desired and the light cover in the bathroom had a big hole burnt into it.
Decided on the first night to sample the food, asked for a pork chop, tht is what i got, no vegetables! just a few very soggy chips,
This is unfortunate as the Landlord is actually a very nice chap.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2011

We used this hotel as a base to explore Stokesay castle and area over Easter. It is more of a pub with rooms and a restaurant but is very welcoming. The room had a flat screen tv, fridge and good mattress. The food from the restaurant was well cooked and fast and there was a good selection of bitters!

I found this hotel extremely welcoming. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The room was clean and adequately provisioned. The breakfast was very good. It was, overall, excellent value.
