Good old fashioned fun! Breakfast was beautiful! Comfy beds and pleasant host with a knowledge of information. Hotel was well located for the north side and wasn't far to walk to town where there are some lovely restaurants. Jenny made us feel really welcome

We came with a group of friends and we had a lovely stay here where we were looked after really well. We had good nights' sleep in our comfortable, cosy room and the breakfast each morning was delicious! It was a very nice place to stay.
