The room is spotless, great layout for abit of privacy and very decent sofa bed- plenty of space. Lots of lovely touches, Haribo... More

When we arrived at the hotel we were slightly early but they let us in and gave us some complimentary drinks, when our rooms were ready they took our bags up for us and then when we were ready they showed us to...

We stayed here for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year- we chose the hotel because it was dog friendly and near to my sister's house. However the hotel outdid itself on service, comfort etc. we had a very warm welcome from Jarvis (one of the owners) who enquires about our plans, made suggestions and generally made us feel very...

Loved this hotel ... welcomed very pleasantly - room spotlessly clean, effective shower, lots of small additional touches (great to have a hotel that does not skimp on the tea and coffee sachets) - not only biscuits but caramel wafers (as it happens my favourite), crisps, sweets - l'Occitaine toiletries - soft pillows. At breakfast, food was great - had... More

As soon as we arrived we were made to feel really welcome, the rooms were lovely - well decorated, clean, comfortable bed with lovely soft linen. Breakfast was delicious, no scrimping here on portions. This place is a gem, don't bother wasting... More

Our stay was pleasant and comfortable. Breakfast was lovely. Staff were friendly and helpful. A very nice bed and breakfast but not really a boutique hotel. Perhaps marginally more expensive than it should be. Our room was over £300 for 2 nights.
