Thornleigh is excellent in every way, David and Clare are so welcoming, friendly, professional. Breakfasts are amazing. Parking at the GH or just around the corner free. Plenty of local knowledge. :-)

Visited weekend of 6th of March with a group and we all loved our stay. The location is central but quiet, the views are great from every room, the mattresses are comfy and clearly expensive, the breakfast was top stuff. But the customer service was the best bit - they really know how to talk to you and it really... More

They are both so welcoming and full of local knowledge, Clare was so kind to book a restaurant for us on Sunday evening and it was delicious, we would not have expected anything else.

Excellent stay for my partner's birthday. Clare was extremely helpful in arranging little extra touches including wine and chocolates in the room and making recommendations and reservations for a special evening meal. Perfect location for access to walks, the lake, shops and restaurants. We had a lovely weekend and cannot wait to come back for a longer stay. Thank you... More
