The Playden Oasts is just a wonderfully relaxing, welcoming inn.If you are looking for the bland big chain inns this is not for you. The decor is entirely fitting with the character of the place, it is warm and cosy. You get a lovely friendly welcome and nothing is too much. The bar and restaurant is comfy and is used... More

This was the third time I've stayed, a really nice place with friendly staff. The food was great, the beer excellent and a warm genuine welcome from the staff and locals who went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. Warm and cozy, looking forward to next visit.

Arrived after a stressful journey to be greeted by wonderful hospitality, immediately shown to my cosy room and within minutes sandwiches and a large glass of wine! Bed was very clean and comfortable but sadly the room wasn't terribly clean with cobwebs on walls and in shower, bits on the carpet and bedside lamps needed a dust down. Having said... More

A lovely location including an attractive garden with many trees and, from our room, a fine view. The delightful landlady and all her staff could not have been more welcoming, friendly and attentive. Our room, although not large, was well appointed and, as with all other parts of the Inn, the housekeeping was of a high standard. The bed was... More

We had eaten well here a few years ago and had promised ourselves a night in the round room. There was a rounded bed and a bath(!) in the bedroom, with a separate loo and the bed was really comfortable. Noise came from the restaurant below but stopped quite early so it wasn't a problem. We had dinner which was... More

Hotel: It is a lovely quirky hotel but looks like it last had any money spent on it in the 1970's. It is quite old fashioned, swirly carpets and dated decor. Could be really lovely with a bit of cash and thought - needs an Alex Polizzi make over. Also needs a good clean, dusty chairs and woodwork. The evening... More
