8/10 Very good

Very pleased with my stay and would use again
I thought the price was good. Check in was easy though puzzling that you can't get your receipt until check-out although you pay on arrival. Room was very nice and well appointed. TV channels available didn't include a lot of my favourites. I slept really well and the shower worked OK. I didn't try the food though it seemed OK - I might try it next time as the hotel is not very local to anything.

Great meet up with friends
Overall I had a great stay at the Bluebird Inn . It was clean and comfortable . The staff are friendly and make you feel welcome . It could do with some tourist information . The hot water in the shower was a bit too hot and was difficult to regulate .
The Bluebird Inn had visitors  , not quite bluebirds  .

Definitely worth a visit!
Working with a colleague in the North, needed somewhere to stay - beautiful place! We were both impressed. I stay away often for work and always find it hard to sleep - the room was incredibly comfortable and I slept really well. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Food was great. I'd definitely recommend a stay here - I'm from the South West - prices for overnight stays are expensive, this was an absolute bargain to find such a gem at an affordable rate.
