I won a one night stay in this hotel bed and breakfast and a two course evening meal. The twin bedroom was comfortable and spacious enough and bedroom facilities were good.

We were greeted at reception by a lovely man, who was very welcoming. Our room was lovely, we were given a huge family room which had a double bed and three single beds. The room was really clean and comfortable. We had dinner in the hotel on our first night. I had vegetarian lasagne which was fabulous, it was really... More

We asked for a room for two plus two cots for babies and we were given a large room with three single and one double bed (plus the cots). By moving... More
