Good Points: I think that due to the circumstances of the previous owner absconding and defrauding the company (locals were keen to share the information) it would be very unfair to grade the staff and hotel using the above voting mechanism. The staff were under undue pressure after only four days of taking over as all bookings had been deleted by the moonlighters. However, when we arrived, they made us feel very welcome and duly found all three couples in our party a room. The room was clean and tidy, albeit the matress was in need of replacement but all other facilities were in good working order and in good condition. The staff were a family trying to make the best of a bad situation but had a good sense of humour and were very friendly - gave the impression of a family run hotel rather than a chain, which is to their credit. Breakfast was an experience but again, due to our group maintaining a good sense of humour and the staff being so approachable and adaptable (lack of crockery - small coffee pots being used as milk jugs - one can only assume the previous owner moved on with more than money), all I can say is that it was a pleasurable experience and I have no doubt that given support and time to change the damaged reputation, the current management will turn the hotel around.

Having read the bad reviews we still decided to book this hotel as it was the most convenient for what we wanted. We were delighted to find the New Inn under new management - the room was clean, the bed was really comfortable - the breakfast was wonderful and the staff could not be more helpful. Close by parking is a little difficult but the Bruton Way NCP car park is only a few minutes walk away with 24 hour security and only £6.20 for 24 hours. The hotel itself is steeped in really interesting history and is totally charming.
