    Default One to avoid? Channel 5 tonight 18 April 2011

    Featured on The Hotel Inspector on Channel 5, series 7 on 18 April 2011 at 2100

    "17th-century pub and B&B in Winchester that has been plagued by poor reviews – with one disgruntled guest even suggesting it might be the ‘worst hotel in the UK’.

    The Hotel Inspector uncovers a cleaning regime that leaves much to be desired and, after a run-in with a shower room that has a life of its own, she checks out, leaving the First In Last Out with the distinction of being the first establishment she has ever refused to sleep in"

    I recall the Swordfish in Newlyn http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/4946/ was outed by Sky in a programme about the worst pubs in the country. This was a couple of weeks before I was staying in Panzance which is walking distance from Newlyn so I had to check it out for myself. Whilst it wasn't the best pub in the world I didn't have any problems there or feel unwelcome. They had a couple of ales which were decent enough and I wondered what all the fuss was about.

    I have never been there but I am tempted to treat the Winchester FILO with the same approach and, whilst there is no smoke wthout fire, I suspect that the reviews and comments are a bit blown out of proportion and manufactured by people with a grudge.
