A very pleasant stay in quiet location, clean facilities and excellent hosts. Great attention to detail with nothing spared The botanical gardens are nearby and made for an enjoyable evening walk. We will be back. Richard and Tom Kirkland

Being a nurse, im a bit of a "clean freak", everything was neat and tidy. The only problem I had was that the basket which held clean towels was... More

Highly recommendable. The rooms are comfortable and clean; service is very good and we really appreciated the peace and quiet that made for a good night's sleep. In fact, cannot think of anything negative or even any kind of "positive criticism" to add!

My family and I were impressed with the excellent service and facilities offered in the room. We will be visiting again for sure. Breakfast was more than enough and well prepared. My 2 year old was accomodated for free.

The breakfast room felt homely and decorated like an old farm kitchen. If you are driving a large SUV with a trailer beware of the steep S shape... More
