The room ("Stein" - they're all named after celeb chefs!) was nicely decorated and furnished, with French doors out onto a small roof patio area with tables and chairs. The bed...

Found by chance, this is one of those that ticks all the boxes. We booked a Sunday over night stay. On arrival we were greeted with cheery smile and felt immediately welcome.

We took advantage of the Lazy Sunday package offered by the hotel. The pub itself is charming, lovely decor which felt so welcoming. The Sunday roast was absolutely lovely. Our room (Stein) was so pretty with a small decking area overlooking the fields. Everything in the room was perfect, lots of funny and interesting books for grown ups, a powerful...

Location about 30 minutes from the Channel Tunnel made it an ideal stopover location ready for the following day's journey to Luxembourg. Only 4 rooms and we had the MPW room located at the front of the building (pictured). Room was very clean and comfortable but disappointingly minor maintenance issues were present. The lightbulb in one of the bedside lamps...
