Stayed 4 night room excellent , very friendly and a great breakfast , they could not do enough to help. And good value for money. As I was there on my own the staff made you feel very welcome in the morning breakfast room and was very good at recommending places to go and things to do.

Partner & I stayed here 13 June in the room on ground floor. Great hosts, and breakfast was as good as the hosts. Room would be a little better when TV is put on a swivel bracket. All in all, enjoyed the stay.

We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, and that you enjoyed our hosting qualities as well as your breakfast.We are investigating the possibility of putting the D V D Television on a swivel bracket, but are a little apprehensive with it being a large 32 inches. Hope to see you again soon. More
