2.93km from Methodist ChurchTHERE were so many good and bad points about the Roebuck that it was difficult to know where to start this review. So I'll deal with the good points first which were very friendly and extremely helpful staff, a lovely period pub area with wooden beams, a very good evening meal and an excellent breakfast in the restaurant which also served extensive Indian meals at night. Nothing was too much trouble for Reception who handled several queries for me including booking me a taxi to the railway station. Top marks for all that. My room was small and compact and it had a wealth of facilities from a kettle and coffee making facilities to a suitcase stand. Unfortunately my room also came with an extremely annoying tapping-clicking-dripping sort of noise which I could neither pin down or do anything about. I even switched the radiator off to see if it was that but it wasn't. Still don't know what it was -- did report it to staff -- but it cost me several hours sleep. Other annoyances included my mattress seemingly being on a slight slant to one side which gave the impression you might slide out of bed and on to the floor while I could hear other people in the room next door and the room above me, both talking, shifting things and walking about. Two tiles were broken in the shower but poor maintenance -- as other reviewers have said -- was the main negative for the Roebuck. Surrounding gardens hadn't seen any love, care or attention for years. Saplings have sprung up next to building walls which are slowly being taken over by ivy which is so invasive it has actually grown through the surrounding of one large corridor window. Another corridor window seemed to have broken and been crudely boarded up. Undergrowth in other areas has simply been clumsily cut and the branches left to lie on the ground while large clumps of brambles have totally taken over one corner in the angle of buildings as well as growing into huge garden clumps. Corridor carpets are faded and worn, exterior paintwork is either flaking or has come off altogether, one double glazed window in my bedroom had blown with condensation inside it and corridor floors often creaked loudly although, fortunately, not outside my room. All in all, I would return to stay here but only if the Roebuck fitted my needs which it just about did for this trip. I'd think twice about a long stay here.
