    Good stay - but not the wifi!

    Checked in late but with no problems and welcomed really well. Breakfast (freshly and individually cooked) was delicious. Only problem was that I was completely unable to log on to the wifi. Never seen such a complicated log on procedure!

      The hotel was ideally located just behind the High Street with lots of facilities in walking distance. Room was fine for the purpose, lovely self service breakfast with large selection, private car park. Complaint is that the signposting for the hotel is appalling. The address says High Street but you can’t actually see it from the High Street so you end up driving past. It’s hidden behind The Giggling Squid - there is a paved walkway to it from the front (only evident on foot and once you know where it’s licated!), but if you’re looking for the car park then there are no signposts to it - it’s randomly accessed from a confusing Waitrose & Public Car Park. So if you’re parking here, look for Waitrose and it’s car park.

      The bonus of the hotel is that it has its own parking which is why I went there. Although I had a number of bags, no offer was made at reception to help me up the stairs with my bags. The room looked out over the car park and had a ghastly carpet. The shower room was so small the toilet roll holder kept getting knocked over. The fan was so noisy that I had to ring reception for help as it was and a man came to disable the fan standing on a chair, using a coat hanger. I had phoned in advance to ask if I could have breakfast at the Kings Arms which is a much nicer sister hotel on the high street (no parking there but far nicer). I was told I would get a 20% discount at the Kings Arms but that it had a full menu whereas the Penny Farthing basically only offered a continental or full English breakfast on request. The next day I breakfasted at the Kings Arms where I was told my delicious breakfast was free as I was staying at the Penny Farthing. I decided that I would return to the Kings Arms next time. Nicer rooms, nicer ambience and well informed and charming staff. Sorry Penny Farthing - I won’t be coming back.
