Suzi Young couple Stayed: Aug 15

Disappointed

Not what we thought we had booked. Small pokey cold room, no towels, no lampshade. Hardly room to move around the bed, hanging facilities were a hook on the back of the door. Very disappointed and had we not have been there for a wedding we would have left. Evening meal was sent back twice as undercooked and salad was served in a hot bowl. Read more

Good Pleasant Pub & Hotel

One night dinner, bed and breakfast. Read more

Response

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that the service in the restaurant was a little slow - I will check with the staff who were working that night to ascertain if there was a problem. Sometimes it may appear that others who are seated after you are served before you - very often they have pre-ordered and then only sit down to eat when their meal is ready. The electrics were checked the next day and the bulb blowing had tripped the electrics which can unfortunately happen anywhere.

The village of Chulmleigh is a delightful English village, well worth a visit.
Dislikes?
The service in the restaurant seemed to be somewhat slow and other guests who arrived after us seemed to be served before us.

Attractive room but facilities/attention to detail lacking

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Red Lion for two nights as I had some work to do nearby on one of the days. The Red Lion was one of a few B&B's I looked at with equally convenient locations. My main reason for choosing The Red Lion was the claim of good pizza and the look of the rooms - I paid more for the luxury of a large four-poster, however, as a business traveller I would never stay anywhere without wi-fi and was very disappointed to discover theirs didn't work!

Likes?
The room was spacious and attractive, as was the bathroom which had a very nice shower. The staff were friendly when we arrived and the pub downstairs seemed to be the heart of the village.
Dislikes?
Free wi-fi promised which didn't work - real let down!! No special veggie breakfast. The blind in the bedroom was broken so very bright at night. White hairs on cushions. No non-allergenic bedding.
