We stopped off here while having a drive out on Sunday. From the outside the place looks quite elegant but it’s very tired on the inside. We pondered whether or not to eat but so pleased we did. We didn’t have anything adventurous, just two full English that were cooked just perfect and one Beef Chilli that was described ‘as... More

My friends and I have stayed here many times when cycling the c2c route over 2 days and are always looked after come rain or shine. The welcome is great, the rooms and food are great and there is a safe place for the bikes and an area to dry wet clothes. Perfect for us.

A friendly atmosphere was all around the hotel and nothing was too much trouble for the very friendly staff. The room was very clean and the bathroom was very modern with a roll top free standing bath.... More

The hotel and staff were excellent. The other guests were mostly ramblers and everybody seemed to be in good spirits, so the atmosphere was a pleasant one. If I get the chance, I would love to stay here again.
