A lovely place to stay with the staff being friendly and helpful. Shame I left my toilet bag there. Most recommended. Nice and warm, with the rooms being clean and functional. Breakfast was lovely too.

The room was extremely comfortable, though it was a pity it overlooked the kitchen extractor chimney. The food and service was also excellent. The only complaint we had that despite a request in our on-line booking to have a room on the first floor, due to age and mobility, we were given a room on the second floor which was... More

The breakfast was reasonable and although the staff were pleasant enough they were not as attentive. Waited an age... More
