Lovely welcoming staff with lots of information about the local area and was able to book in earlier than 2pm. In walking distance of the lovely town. We were able to borrow a set of easy to use walks. Yummy breakfast with local food and plenty of it. Sweets and brandy in the room alongside tea, coffee and biscuits. Would... More

Really great stay, we stayed in the deluxe room on the top floor fab full poster bed with the added bonus of a fantastic view. Andrew and the staff couldn't be more hospitable particularly as we booked in very last minute, would absolutely recommend.

I booked 4 Four Poster Rooms for a surprise for my wifes 50th birthday. We had three of our closest friends joining us and it was a well kept secret all involved - including the staff at check in. Firstly about the place - we had rooms 2, 3, 6 and 9. The rooms were perfect. Beautifully decorated and plenty... More

In the bedroom there were areas that had not seen a vacuum cleaner in months and the skirting boards were lined in dust plus shabby paint work.There was a very unprofessional multi outlet extension block loosely connected to the wall. This room is also next... More

Very nice place in a very convenient location. The room was spacious and clean but the bathroom was quite small - we didn't mind but it could be a problem for a bigger person. Breakfast was nice and we did like very friendly and efficient service. As for the staff - we were greeted by Pawel who was very friendly... More

Staff were excellent in helping with advice on what to do & where to eat etc etc My only criticism was that the... More
