Exceptionally friendly, the breakfast was good each morning, the room was spacious and the views are brilliant. The only bad point of the whole stay is that the temperature of the hotel is too high due to the fact that 90% of the clientele were pensioners. Even with no heating and Windows wide open in the room it was still... More

Stayed here for two nights and had a lovely time. Hotel staff very friendly and nothing too much trouble. Breakfast was very nice, plenty of tea and toast. Poached eggs cooked to perfection. Would definitely stay here again as good value for money.

Guess with the tariff the hotel charges, I shouldn't expect more, maybe I should.. I dont know.. The hotel is a old building constructed years back, made of wood and the condition of room was very average with a strong woody smell.. There was no fan in our room as it was pretty hot during the 2 days of July... More

Firstly what amazing staff this hotel has. Nothing is to much trouble and you are always greeted with a smile. The rooms were lovely and well equipped even accommodating my Mum and Dad with a walk in shower. Breakfast was lovely and we ate twice in the evenings which they loved. The hotel was full yet it didn't feel crowed.... More
