Stayed here on business on the winter special offer which was a bargain (£60 B&B). Room was clean and adequate, although I think if you'd paid full price you would have got a larger room. Ate in the bar, and the food was all homemade and delicious. Breakfast menu was unbelievably long, only wish there had been more time to... More
