"A night in an historic coaching inn...what's not to love?!"
We both had a delicious bar-meal, a wonderful, comfy night's sleep, and the most fabulous breakfast the next morning (including the best fried egg I've ever had!). The kitchen staff take pride in what they send out and considering the high quality, it's incredible value for money. The 14th Century inn itself is a museum piece; sloping floors, beams, stables and gorgeous courtyard, oozing with history. We were made very welcome and would love to return. Read less
Likes:
character, food, friendly staff
large bedroom with en-suite
free on-site secure parking
central historic area of Faringdon
own keys to building to come 'home' when ready
walking uphill to kettle!
Dislikes:
bathroom little tired

"An interesting stay - in several ways"
We found this an attractive and traditional country hotel offering a friendly but variable quality of service. The premises are attractive, but poorly-maintained, and attention needs to be given to staff training to meet the expectations of modern guests. Read less
Likes:
The building and the staff
Dislikes:
There were serious deficiencies in the standard of maintenance, and I would have preferred simpler food, with vegetarian options.The fire at breakfast time was cause for concern!

"Easy night"
Walking the Thames path, we needed a one night stop over and considered this a suitable place - twin room, possibility of evening meal and breakfast in one location. Although Farringdon had a range of options, we weren't sure we would have enough energy to go elsewhere. Lived up to expectations - the only hassle was the 2 mile walk on a busy road from Thames to Farringdon. Read less
Likes:
Helpful, friendly staff.
Dislikes:
Ancient plumbing meant slow filling of toilet cistern, waiting for hot water to get through to the sink. Shower attachment in bath, but this had to be handheld, no shower curtain.

"No hot water and no compensation"
Have stayed twice before. Had small poor quality room first time, much better larger room the second. Unfortunately I got the smaller room again this time despite eighty pounds for the night. The radiator didn't work so just an electric heater for the room and no heating at all for the bathroom. Bathroom very outdated, cistern would only flush every third or fourth attempt. Poor fitting window. Unfortunately no hot water at all in the morning. Had to have cold shower and heat several kettles. Read less
Likes:
Pub itself is good. Food is fine. Breakfast staff helpful.
Dislikes:
Poor heating (electric heater only) and no hot water in the morning - stone cold - in February! Manager more concerned about how he'd fix than satisfying customers. Have received no apology or refund.

"It was ok"
There was meant to be parking but when I got there after a very long day, the carpark was being used for an event and I had to park in a pay and display carpark across the way. The room was very basic and cold and the bathroom (that wasn't en suite) was freezing. The shower trickled out and was not pleasant as there was no heating either. The lock to get in the room was so stiff that I hurt my fingers each time and I had a bruise there for several days. The bed was comfortable though. Read less
Likes:
The lady running it was lovely and very helpful, getting me a heater to use and bringing me a drink to my room. It was a shame because she was so nice.
Dislikes:

"Friendly staff but dated rooms"
We stayed one night for a friend's wedding nearby. The staff were friendly, and the building definitely has character. The rooms are OK, but in ours the bathroom definitely needed updating. The shower curtain rail was hanging off the wall, the shower needed more than the usual fiddling to get to a reasonable temperature, and the toilet required some kind of secret handshake to flush properly. Breakfast was nice, but our friends waited nearly an hour for their food. Read less
Likes:
The location in the centre of town is good, and the pub food was decent enough.
Dislikes:
Everything feels like it needs a bit of a refresh, and the bathrooms need replacing.
