Not what was expected

Liked: So after a long drive from France. I was looking for some where clean and comfortableThe barn is just Ok. staff were very pleasant and welcoming,but once again I feel I?m mislead By reviews on there just not accurate enough to be reliable. Peoples expectations vary maybe they should look at other ways of scoring But not a hotel issue
Disliked: Spiders webs hanging from the ceiling. Ok it?s no biggie but there old webs dangling dusty webs, come on get the feather dusters out. Functions when we arrived so no restaurant. We could have eaten in the Bar but it?s was very busy with people at the function. A simple call to let us know then we could have made other arrangements. Heating in the room was a hit and a miss. But if your ok with chipped paint work and dreary decor then this is the place to be. Not my thing sorry

Lovely location. Would confidently visit...

Liked: Excellent breakfast. Excellent location overlooking river. Staff were generally attentive/
Disliked: One dinner proved less than acceptable, but it was soon replaced. Staff sought to assure us that they were doing their best. Just an unfortunate incident!
