I stay here regularly on business, it's always a pleasure. Great hosts, nice food, the menu is updated frequently. The wines have just been changed too. New ones to try! Breakfast is good. If there is anything you need just ask, I was even able to borrow a charger for my phone.

My Husband and I visited this hotel for one night , on Saturday the 9 January 2016. On arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome by the owner Debra.

Hi Suzanne. Thank you for taking the time to write a review following your stay with us last week. I am delighted that you liked the hotel and the food, but I am obviously very disappointed that you were so cold.

Stayed 16th January and we were upgraded to a Superior Kingsize room, number 3. Superb room with quality furnishings. Huge bathroom/shower room, slight negative being only a heated towelrail to heat the large room and the blind didn't appear to work. Delicious dinner in the evening. All staff extremely helpful and sociable. Already looking forward to a return visit.

We only stayed in this hotel for 1 night, but can't speak highly enough if it and will definitely be returning. Particularly notable was the friendliness of the staff who were attentive and proffesional and couldn't do enough to help. The room was clean and comfortable. We dined in the restaurant and the food was excellent and reasonably priced and... More
