Marquis of Granby, WellingoreThis country inn hotel looks the part and is situated right on the High Street. If the thought of staying in a pub makes you think of noisy customers or traffic, rest assured. The accommodation in in a separate building at the rear of the pub.

The Marquis of Granby has six en suite rooms: two double, two twin and two family rooms from £60 per night and this includes a full English breakfast and TV and tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms.

We had a family room with a double and single bed plus a travel cot for Harriet. The bathroom was a nice size but only had a shower which was fine for the adults but not so good for Harriet. The room was clean and comfortable.

Marquis of Granby, WellingoreWe were asked what time we would like breakfast and when I said 8.00, Tony, the landlord looked unhappy and said that the other guests had booked for 9.30! Made me wish I'd got in first to see theri faces! Anyway we compromised on 8.30 – Harriet (and I) just wouldn't have been happy waiting longer.

The breakfast was freshly cooked and the mushrooms were particularly nice – there was juice and a choice of cereals to start plus plenty of tea and coffee. And no one batted an eyelid when Harriet made a mess!

The restaurant serves meals at lunch and dinner times plus there are bar snacks for a lighter meal.
