Having stayed at the Compleat Angler on several previous occasions and always taken one of the 'feature rooms' with the view of the river, I made sure that we would get the room we wanted for our visit in May by paying for it in full, in advance.
When we arrived at 16.00, tired but pleased at having beaten the rush hour, the hotel reception told us that they had sold our room to somebody else. This is the room that we had booked and paid for three months in advance.
Beware if you book this hotel.
They are not to be trusted.
Their word is worth nothing at all.
Have a nice day.
