Found by chance - they don't advertise on the web, yet. Really friendly staff. Accommodation a bit 'eclectic', eg no bedside lights, yet. But wonderful room, lovely comfortable bed and the best breakfast we've had for very long time.

We could not eat in the main dining area but the adjacent bar is very nice and they serve the same menu. Both meals where very nice and there is a nice atmosphere to the place. The staff are friendly and the service was very good.

Service was very good. The food was served hot and good portion sizes. My only negative comment would be the chips... More
