Stayed overnight for a meeting at the research council. Much better than the hotels I usually stay in. Comfortable bed, excellent breakfast, fast wifi and welcoming/friendly hosts. The owner even gave me to a lift to my meeting in the morning. I will definitely stay again.

Winston made us most welcome with tea and biscuits before showing us to our twin room. The room provided very comfortable beds and some nice touches such as complimentary chocolate bars and a ( very) mini fridge... More

Hi there, So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Sue's lemon curd and raspberry jam are going down a storm at the moment.
