Likes:
Food was excellent and the real ale was kept to the standard that CAMERA would demand.
Dislikes:
The traffic noise which continued day and night making sleep difficult.
Premises needs double glazing to lessen the sound from the traffic.
Response from The BlackSmiths Arms:
this room has a double bed and a single that has ample movement, I remember your stay as said when you stayed this is a 18th century building and are unable to do double glazing, but you slept with your windows open and you are on the a22, but most people go out in the afternoons and don't stay in so they would not notice this. im sorry you didn't enjoy your stay but we are not aloud to change certain things due to regulations. kind regards Paul & Sam

Likes:
The food was very well cooked, and nicely presented, the sports bar was very nice
Dislikes:
A lot of specials were advertised on the menu but when we actually went down to dinner several were not available, perhaps the boards should be updated more regularly.

I would have to say that the best thing about the stay was the way were treated and the attitude of the staff who were incredibly helpful for us, especially seeing as we were younger than most.
