Likes:
Quite easy to find and not too far from motorway.
Dislikes:
A little bit noisy from traffic outside, which the proprietor was aware of, he said he was not sure why this has started just recently.
It was no problem for myself and partner.

"Fantastic stay - wish we had found this spot before!"
Only one night, sadly, as this is an absolute gem and would have liked to stay longer.
Gorgeous room - Lords. Super clean and beautiful furnishings. Quite a large bathroom.
Tassimo coffee maker, teas, biscuits, crisps, chocolates and oranges in the room.
Super friendly owners who made us very welcome.
Wish we had known about this before, as we have been coming to this area for years to visit relatives. Read less

"Great experience for an overnight stay"
Amazing find of this lovely B&B. Brian and Alma were very welcoming and could not do enough for us. We are attending a wedding nearby and Brian offered his chauffeuring services there and back. Now, that's service! Rooms were clean and comfortable with perfect attention to detail. Breakfast was a superb array of home cooked ham, scambled eggs and cheeses, home made jam with fresh juice and coffee.
We feel extremely lucky to have chosen Brian and Alma's place to stay, and would fully recommend. Read less

"Absolutely excellent"
I was under the impression, because of the name that this B & B was a pub, and arrived very late in the evening. when Alma and Brian were ready for bed. However, they could not have been more welcoming and riendly. The room was small but very clean and comfortable, with a well appointed ensuite bathroom. I enjoyed my breakfast too. I have no hesitation in recommending the Cricketers- as long as you are not expecting a drink at the (non-existent) bar before retiring! Read less

The welcome, the comfortable bed and the spotless cleanliness of the room.

Response from The Cricketers:
Thank you Simon for taking the time to write such a great review. It was no problem accommodating your late check-in. Our property has an interesting history and was once a pub, albeit a hundred years ago. However there are a few pubs locally that are more than happy to provide a wonderful pint of real ale and a bite to eat.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your room and breakfast and hope to see you again.
Best wishes Alma and Brian.

"Friendly hosts who go out of their way to help."
Brian and Alma were super friendly and welcoming. Brian drove us to and from the pub for our meal out and they even let us stay an extra night when our other plans fell through which meant we imposed on their Christmas. They didn’t seem to mind and even provided us with mince pies and Christmas cake!! Read less

This was our base for a local party, and it was a home from home. The room itself was well equipped and the bed was very comfortable. It was a lovely surprise to find the room had an ensuite bathroom. Brian very kindly picked us up after the party finished. Very kind!Breakfast was just right, and the home made marmalade was delicious! Read less

Hi Phil and Jan. Thank you for your fantastic review. We are so pleased that you appreciated all the "creature comforts" that we provide. Phil has a great taste in music (same as Brian's) and we had lots to chat about. We look forward to seeing you both again when you next visit your son and family in Spencers Wood.
