This place has a very warm cosy feel to the place the staff were excellent from back to front, we waited a while for the food but believe me it's well worth the wait. Great views from the rooms. Couldn't really fault the place. Nothing was a problem staff really attentive and friendly. Would stay again. Ian

I've stayed in smaller doubles and been charged a lot more! the decor was very tastefully done and the bed was lovely and comfy with lovely linen. It has so many lovely little extra touches and getting one of their offer... More
