Thank you Chris & Gordon for another wonderful stay. My room, also number 6, was clean and tidy and looked just as fresh as the first time I stayed in it 2 years ago. Nothing is ever too much trouble and we always had a good laugh every morning at breakfast and over drinks at night.

Seventh stay with Chris, Gordon, Ruby & Roxy and the rooms are still spotless and the hosts are still delightful. We never tire of visiting, such a great base for all local attractions and great to catch up over a few drinks. Each time it gets harder to leave.

There was no more they could possibly do to make us feel at home. The rooms were spotless and breakfast plentiful. I can't wait to return and... More

Our room was light and spacious, very clean and comfortable with all the trappings of a hotel. It had a double bed, large chest of drawers, a two seater leather settee in front of the TV,... More
