As always an very comfortable and enjoyable visit. The rooms are excellent having been recently upgraded. The service in the bar was good as was the food which is always promptly delivered, freshly prepared and piping hot. An added bonus is 2 locally brewed real ales available on the bar. In all absolutely ideal.

Lovely Place In A Beautiful Location.
My two small boys and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only problem was the choice of meal for my 9 year old, who is a vegetarian. I understand that 9 year old vegetarians are probably not regular clients of yours, but please could there be more flexibility with the menu? I asked if an omelette could be made for him and the answer from the waitress was no! Surely that shouldn\'t be a problem. Regardless of this, I do hope to return one day to this lovely place.

1 Night Stay
Very good value for money. Food was good, both evening meal and breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful. Some aspects of the accommodation are quite tired and need an update/refresh. The room was v hot though in their defence, it was a hot day. If you want basic cheap accommodation, this place should fit the bill. If you want pampered luxury then probably not.

We\'d Stay Again!
I stayed for one night with my wife, 14 yr old and 2 small dogs. Everyone there is really friendly and they are always wiling to help. The B&B room was clean and comfortable (if a little small, especially the bathroom). The food was good and my family and dogs had a good time either sitting by the fire or playing games.

Family Room With Dog
We stayed in a very small room, 2 single beds, and a bunk bed. Just enough space to fit in our travel cot for the baby and a space to fit the dog bed in by the bunkbeds( big dog!). The TV didn\'t work and was tiny. Outside the room was a lethal staircase with no guard , I was really worried the kids would fall down it. The bathrrom was shared with a shower, so couldn\'t bath the baby! The shower room is in desperate need of doing up, cracks everywhere and very under finished. Very noisy people in the pub below until midnight. The breakfast was nice and the staff were friendly. It\'s hard to expect much for £100 / night but we stayed at the premier inn the night before for. £65 and it was much better. Maybe visit them and take some tips! Need to look at safety as those stairs may end up in you getting sued . I had to fill the kettle up in the shared bathroom which was abit odd . A sink in the room would be far better or an ensuite.

Response from Accommodation
This is a very hard review to respond to as its very contradictory. The staff appreciate acknowledgement for their continued hard work and have passed on your comments. The room you had sleeps 4 comfortably and is not a very small room. Accommodating a travel cot and a very large dog (which incidentally we knew nothing about, nor was paid for) would encroach on space 4 people would normally have. Children\'s stair guards are not normally found in pub B&Bs. This is not a home, but an old traditional country pub and bathrooms are not always possible to install in all rooms, nor is the control of noise in a pub. I would suggest in future you research your accommodation needs before booking old traditional country pubs and maybe stick to purpose built Premier Inns.

Giler Arms
14 of us went for an evening at the Giler Arms over the bank holiday and we all had a great time.
The evening meals were all excellent and reasonably priced and the new owners very hospitable and keen to please.
Views from the rooms and restaurant were amazing and would recommend this stay.
We would have no hesitation in going back.

Two Night Stay
On arrival at the hotel we were greeted very warmly by the manager Mark. In fact, throughout our stay, he made us feel very welcome indeed. Our room was adequate with s comfortable bed. Lovely biscuits and hot chocolate sachets were supplied, in addition to the standard tea/coffee, which was a nice touch. The Batham's beer was excellent. Breakfasts were freshly cooked and plentiful with a good choice of items available. The evening meals were standard "pub grub", but tasty and portions were generous. The hotel looks out onto a small lake and is in a picturesque setting. This appears to be the only place in the vicinity selling real ale, so a real beer "oasis"! All in all, a very relaxing couple of days and if in the area again we would certainly consider staying here for a second time.
