Lovely place to rest our heads and have a great meal. Very well priced, we received an upgrade which made the room less expensive. Wonderful meal and the room was very clean and spacious. Tom was a great manager and a wonderful host. You cant go past this lovely hotel at such an amazing price. Thank you!

The welcome stranger could have been a very good find indeed, it is in a great position, offers off street parking [if you have en-suite accommodation]. Rooms are dated but in quite a nice way with timber fittings and fresh paint, a modern tv and small fridge provided.Room no 6 was spacious enough and very clean. The bed comfortable and... More

Dear Guest I am sorry that your stay was not of a higher standard.

Woke us both up two mornings in a row. Our pillows were a bit dirty and had mildew on the cases. The manager quite happily found... More
