Paid £120 deposit direct too, so what will happen with that is unknown. Disgusted nobody bothered to let us know. The same group of us had a great time there last year,... More

Booked to go here in July through booking . Com only to receive a e mail saying it's closing !!! Now fighting for deposit back . They now say we have to send a bank statement with proof of booking .. Most people have paperless banking. Check booking conditions when booking with Booking.com

This hotel has continued to Honour Bookings Throughout the Change of Hands, Your Booking Should Be Honoured, Booking.com should not be Canceling any Bookings. Please Get in Touch Directly with the New Hoteliers, as I am sure they will honour any deposits paid/Collected.. Warm Regards. More

Myself and my partner stayed here on the 6th June 2014.The owners were very friendly and helpful without a doubt,although it has to be said the room was very unclean, there were holes in the wall in main room, the shower was blocked and floor uneven in the bathroom.There was no bar facility.The breakfast was nice though.
