We booked a room here purely on reading the reviews online & we certainly were not disappointed. Richard & Merle greeted us on the doorstep like old friends, We were shown to our room, lovely, spacious, spotlessly clean & en suite was suited for every need. We were left bottled water in the fridge, along with wine glasses & bottle... More

In a compact and cozy room with en suite shower room, and free wi-fi, everything you could possibly want is second guessed. There's a nice cold fridge... More

Merle and Richard are indeed wonderful hosts - the breakfast would shame large hotels, though I'd be tempted to cut down on the massed rank... More

The room I stayed in was incredibly cosy and had everything you could possibly need. The breakfast choice is just unbelievable! There was so many choices of fresh fruit. The cooked... More
