    lovely staff, especially in dining room, great feel about the place, dinner excellent and breakfast even better. Good variety of real ales. Bed really comfortable, quality!

    Even for a "bargain" room, disappointing! shower shocking, tiny wash basin, excessive noise from refrigeration machinery on roof! Shame as a little more attention to detail would make the size of the room not matter, as furnishings so good.

    The room was large with a bathroom to die for. Nicely decorated and incredibly comfortable bed. Breakfasts were good.

    The room had suffered a leak two weeks prior to our stay so bad musty smell. This was dealt with quickly and we were given that night for free which was satisfactory. Fresh juice at breakfast would reflect better the standard they are trying to achieve.

    Food was lovely.

    Upper room very hot (30 degrees) Overpriced. Felt we had to ask for everything (milk for coffee, toast for breakfast etc) It was great as a place to eat but no a good place to stay (they deposited glass recycling outside our window at just gone midnight!!) This really is a pub with rooms not a boutique hotel.

    Our third visit and looking forward to our fourth. The room we booked wasnt available due to a plumbing issue but apart from that, everything else was perfect. Staff are fantastic, food excellent (breakfast and dinner) and the service was first class as usual. We feel very well looked after at The Fontmell and will definitely return.

    Nothing - perhaps if being picky - new carpets on the stairs/ landing leading to the rooms.

    The staff very friendly. We had an evening meal which was very good indeed.

    It would have been better if on the site there was a note that evening meal should be booked beforehand. Although we ate well it was not possible until later. Shower not brilliant, would have liked a wardrobe not hangers on hooks.

    We loved the very friendly staff, noting was a problem

    We have been unfortunate to stay in a small room with a baby cot. But we will come back again and book a bigger room right from the start.

    What's not to like? My wife and I loved this quaint hotel that was ideally suited for us both in location and what it offered us in terms of comfort and excellent food. The staff were quite excellent and took care of our every need. We stayed in an amazing room with a huge really comfortable bed and a very large free standing bath which we took advantage of. Walking over a stream to get to breakfast was really novel and the full English was so worth waiting for, served by a lady who cleared enjoyed working there. Highly recommended and we hope to stay there again in the Summer.

    Nothing at all.

    Free room upgrade was offered without a request from us as there was a mix up with our booking. The food was superb and service outstanding.

    Being picky: there wasn't a power point for my hair dryer anywhere near a mirror. An oversight as the room in all other respects was superb.

    Restaurant was fantastic! We were able to have our dog stay with us also- a real bonus! A very comfy bed too.

    Our room was quite small.

    The Mallyshag room was the most beautiful hotel room I've stayed in. The bed is huge and comfortable and the room had everything we wanted. We actually got engaged at The Fontmell on New Year's Eve so our whole experience was pretty magical.

    The set menu on New Year's Eve was a bit too pretentious for our taste. We ate lunch there the next day though and the food was delicious.
