We stayed here for 1 night in the family room on bank holiday Monday. From the greeting by Dave (owner) and staff, when we arrived to the moment we left everything was spot on. The family room, 1 double and 2 singles was spacious with an immaculate on suite shower room, in fact everything was spotless everywhere. I really can't... More

We found that even on a busy bank holiday Saturday car... More

As we had not stayed here since David and Laura took over the business we were not sure whether the previous standard had been maintained. We were very pleased to find that the whole property had been redecorated. By coincidence we were given the room we had four years ago. It was kept beautifully clean and the sheets and towels...

Just got back home after a 3 night stay at the arches. Many thanks to dave and all the staff. Our room was spotlessly clean and my daughter loved the single bed (no bunk beds in room 5)! The breakfast was really good. My husband loved the fruit salad and home made jam. As a family we really needed this... More
