Arrived here and felt very uncomfortable as the only woman being starred at my a group of men waiting to check in. No real system and still no idea what the system is! No warm welcome, no explanation of what time breakfast was.
The room stripped of soft furnishings understandable with COVID guidelines, bed dreadful springs digging in my hip. Bathroom no shower and basin plug does not fit thus sink does not full up. Bedroom faced the beer garden so kept awake until 12 with the rowdy group.
The positive is the evening meal was excellent.
Breakfast another fiasco, and chaotic, no menu and here is my toast to start and no brown bread option or browning of the white coast! The gentleman serving was very nice but was very stressed, no cereal, fruit offer. Toast with my poached egg not buttered all very ‘greasy cafe’. Not a great stay.
We stayed at the New Inn overnight while visiting St Melangell's shrine. We had a large twin room with en-suite. The room was clean and well equipped for the very reasonable price. The beds were very comfortable and the room warm. Had an evening meal and breakfast both were good home well cooked food. The landlord and bar staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. The pub is well patronised by the locals so there was a great atmosphere in the evening. Next time we will stay longer!!
It would have been OK for half the price but for £70 a night it was a let down. The overriding factor was that it was tired, dirty and messy to the point I didn't want to walk around the room bare foot. Given the location and footfall in the summer it should be better. Unless the price halves I'd rather camp next time.
Note: it has wifi but it's near on impossible to connect.
We have just returned from a weekend treat but staying here was no treat. The images of these room do not resemble ours. Housed across the road our room was dated, all that you can say is the bed linen was clean. The bathroom had not been cleaned and the toilet was un flushed. The breakfast raised issues with hygiene for me, the flies around the kitchen door a concern, the dirty crockery and table linen secondary. For seventy good pounds per night I am utterly shocked. DO NOT STAY HERE
We stayed here with my husband, son & 2 puppies(15wks & 16mths) in July 19. We had a phone call off the New Inn a few days before asking if we would still be arriving, what time & could we pay for the room before arrived which we did. When we arrived we were shown to our room by a young lad behind the bar.
The hall & stairs carpets looked rather tired & thread bare. The room he showed us to had a double bed & 2 single beds in it, we did have wardrobes but you couldn't use these as 1 of the single beds was in front of it & this also didn't leave us much room to set up our travel dog bed/cage for them to sleep in at night. The bedroom carpet was covered in stains & the room looked clean but very dated. I understand this is a room for you to stay in with your dogs but i have clean carpets at home with 2 puppies so expect clean carpets when i take them away also not stains just left to turn black from the muck of peoples shoes.
The beds looked & felt like they needed replacing also as they were very lumpy. Also they supply ear plugs with your fresh towels which is something I have never seen before, in any other place around the world.
We ate dinner in the bar which we found to be quite expensive for what they offered. The breakfast was quite greasy & they ran out of most things at breakfast like cups, plates for toast, butter, juice etc & we had to keep asking for them, only for them to have a moan asking if we know what time they finished working last night behind the bar!!!!!
Overall the New Inn was ok but we have found much better places to stay with our puppies in Wales & as we try to go each month with them, we wont waste our money staying here again, for over priced food, drink & lumpy beds.
Oh yes if you have a teenager the WIFI is hit & miss & you wont have a signal on your phone(not the New Inns fault)
