Loved that David remembers your name and little personal details about you and uses this information to make your stay feel like home from home. The room that we used was a little small but well equipped and catered all our needs.

The hotel is lovely and has a nice relaxing atmosphere. Gill and David are really friendly and are always welcoming.

First class service, top quality breakfasts, spotless rooms. Nothing was a problem. All rooms are cleaned daily, and I mean cleaned well. This is a quiet hotel, not for late night party people. Parking available, David sorts this out, Perfect for a short break. We stayed for 3 nights.
