My partner and I stayed at The Hoops Inn for 3 nights in March 2012 for one of our many mid weeks breaks this year (staycation in UK). Cost 55.00 per night, inc breakfast for 2, which we both thought was quite reasonable. We stayed in room 11 which we were happy with. I think it was one of the best nights sleep we have ever had on one of our breaks away, it was so quiet, at night only hearing the pheasents from time to time and the dawn chorus from the other birds at day break, bliss...

A good breakfast menu to choose from with plenty of toast, tea and coffee also offered. There was also a good choice with an evening meal menu from the bar, in which we sampled from the 3 nights that we were there, which were excellent. Some nice local beers from the cask to choose from, it's always nice to try the local ales. And last but not least, all the staff were very warm and friendly. If we stay in the area again, The Hoops Inn will certainly be at the top of our list to stay at. Thank you to the Managment and Staff at The Hoops Inn, you really did make our stay enjoyable and relaxed.
