Fantastic evening meal but the bed felt damp and the bathroom was shocking. The shower enclosure above the bath was painted wood that was coming to pieces and mouldy. There was no extractor fan so the room filled up with steam. Be careful if you allergic to mould. It's a very old building that would obviously cost a fortune to renovate.

Good, but a few problems...

Posted Aug 28, 2016 on Hotels
Lovely bed - so comfortable. Room up two flights of very creaky very awkward stairs,to a room in the roof with low beams. No assistance offered with luggage. Free -standing bathtub with no shower, just a hand-held spray but no shower curtain! Breakfast "at 8.00 to 9.00" NOT: No access to locked dining-room until landlord came down at about 8.30 so having descended the staircase at 8.05 we either had to return up to the room or walk to the local shop for a newspaper. Otherwise food in bar very good, landlord very friendly, breakfast very tasty.

Great Inn in remote location

Posted Jul 22, 2016
Pros: Olde World, Dog friendly , Good Food
Cons: The staff seemed a little off hand to newcomers to the area. No mention of the history of the hotel or local amenities.
Location: Tarr steps is but a walk away with a pub that stays open all day! The Royal Inn sadly doesnt Pity we weren't aware of either as we wasted time looking
Overall a great stay here - comfortable beds and great food with great ales and cider.
