    A little disappointed

    Lovely looking room however lighting not good if you want to put make-up on. Good supply of coffee and tea but no milk which needed to be picked up in the morning. However the kitchen does not open until 8.30am! We were not given a password for the internet and nothing in the room to tell us anything. The shower is a rain shower but no side shower if you dont want to wet your hair. Breakfast was good but de-caf coffee horrible. We ate in the hotel and a starter of scallops was £14.80 for 3 scallops the size of a 5p piece. All the other meals were good.

    Perfect country hotel

    Gêm of a hotel, set in an idyllic village. The staff couldn'tbe more helpful. Lovely rooms all individually designed. And spotlessly clean. The water wasn't super hot but I didn't care as everything else was superb. Looking forward to returning.

    Great night sleep, quaint village hotel

    We booked The Museum Inn last minute. We were warmly welcomed and the hotel had a nice feel about it. Based in a very quaint village we had a peaceful night sleep. Bed was super comfy. Room was slightly tired, nothing a coat of paint wouldn’t fix, but nice furniture and little extras. Very spacious. Huge bathroom and good shower! We dined in the pub/restaurant. Food was good as was service. Opposite was a children’s playground - perfect if staying with young children. All in all we had a nice stay. My only gripe would be that there were no eggs for breakfast. There had been a delivery issue, but still. Personally this is something a hotel should not run out of. The rest of the breakfast was average. It’s the only thing that let them down. I would recommend and I would stay again.

    Beautiful hotel in the middle of the countryside. The pub made for a great evening meal. Everything was very clean and the bed was super comfy! Would definitely return.

    A lovely stay

    A lovely place with very comfortable rooms (exceptionally clean) - part of a terrific pub with great food. Great service from exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. Set in a lovely village packed with thatched cottages in the heart of a beautiful area.

    A charming pub / restaurant set in a pretty village. Our room was in a converted stable block, situated on the ground floor and giving a view of only the car park. The room was quite small for the price, needed some redecorating, but was okay for a one night stay while travelling.
