"Don't stay here find somewhere else"
We were shown to room number 3, just after we had arrived the cleaner came into the room to make the room up for 2 people as she had only made it up for 1 despite us booking this room weeks in advance. We noticed that the kettle, cups etc were in a drawer, that none of the electrical items were PAT tested, the extractor in the bathroom was missing, it had the wrong type of light in the bathroom, only 2 towels, faeces on the bottom of the toilet seat, shower leaked broken tile. Breakfast not good Read less
Likes:
Nothing
Dislikes:
The bed was too short, the window catch was broken and was on permanent open lock therefore it was noisy especially at night, there was spiders and cobwebs all over the room, the room tatty and dirty.

"Weekend Break"
Check in was at the bar, no registration, bar manager was dressed in t-shirt and jeans. We were shown to our room, also shown the fire exit. The stair carpet was old and needs to be replaced. Also we passed a rail of clothes, ironing board, table with piles of old magazines. This needed to be addressed. Room was clean, couldn't find kettle, was told later on that it was hidden away, did eventually find it. Had to put kettle on the floor as the lead was very short. Shower room was small. Read less
Likes:
Very friendly, we ate in the restaurant on the first night of stay, friends joined us, service by the same bar manager was efficient, food was nice, hot and value for money.
Dislikes:
Broken light above sink, cracked tile in shower. Over priced for the state of the place. Needs to be decorated. More toast with breakfast and more tea.

"basic but nice"
I was in the area seeing friends and the location was perfect for that. I was only there a couple of days and didn't want to spend too much on accommodation. There was a general store/post office across the road so I could pick up little bits if needed and of course there was a pub on site. I was concerned it may be noisy but it really wasn't. Read less
Likes:
The room was much bigger than I expected, it could actually have slept 4 adults!! It really was a reasonable price and the staff were lovely.
Dislikes:
When I arrived I noticed used drink bottles in the wardrobe obviously missed by the cleaner but the overall cleanliness was fine. Also, for the life of me I could not find the main light switch! Ha!

Likes:
Arriving late we were served food in the evening even though the kitchen was closing, the staff were friendly and helpful, the bedrooms clean and welcoming.
Dislikes:
In our room the kettle and tea/coffee facilities were hidden away and we had NO milk, lucky for me I like black coffee (mu husband doesn't though!) Add to this there was no hairdryer in our room.

More friendly and helpful owners you could not ask for.
Being a hater of corporate hotels at any value, this just ticks all the boxes at the value end of the scale.
A place i go back to by choice.

"Good nights sleep"
Our stay at the blacksmiths arms was good the place needs updating, bedroom was dark, bathroom facilities needed up dating. And the pub needs a good clean and redecorating. We had dinner which was standard pub food and breakfast was standard also. Lovely bacon wish they used a better quality sausage. Amazing eggs!! Read less
Likes:
Comfortable bed, friendly owners, good pint of Guinness.
Dislikes:
Nothing I didn’t like I just think the place needs a good clean and change in decor to brighten the place up a little. The bathroom facilities need updating the shower was very old but worked okay
