Positive Reviews

Small but comfy rooms

While some guests do comment that they found their room a little compact, the small size doesn't tend to detract from the overall enjoyment. Reviews suggest that you'll find the rooms are both clean and comfy. Guests appreciate the private entrance.

Excellent dining

Guests rate the standard of dining at the Tower Inn highly, with many impressed by the breakfast as well as the lunch and evening meals. The chef is French and seems to have worked some culinary magic here. Reviews indicate that you'll be impressed.

Friendly and welcoming

The owners and staff at this inn are frequently described as friendly and welcoming, leading guests to feel comfortable and at home. One or two guests felt staff in the bar favoured locals, although this is by no means the majority view.

Negative Reviews

Parking is challenging

Getting into the tight car parking facility at the Tower Inn is not for the faint hearted. Guests frequently mention that the approach is narrow, as scuffs along the side of your car may prove. More than one guest gave up and looked elsewhere for parking.

No Wi-Fi in rooms

Although guests are appreciative of the free Wi-Fi in the bar/restaurant of this property, it would be better if the signal also reached the rooms. As it is, you'll need to rely on your mobile signal which may not necessarily be that strong in this rural area.

Not suitable for mobility impaired guests

The steep narrow stairway leading to the guest rooms may rule the Tower Inn out for elderly or mobility impaired guests. Unfortunately, installing a lift would be impractical in a property of this size.
