Could happily have stayed a few more days at this well run friendly hotel. Peter and his wife Gail together with their Entertainment manager Brian and the rest of their team made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble.

Thanks for a fantastic review. It is always a pleasure to welcome back guests who have stayed with us before. The initial barriers have been broken down and on many occasions first name terms are engaged on both sides which makes for a more informal atmosphere that many guests really like. Your group of 6 guests provide a great mix... More
