Didn't actually stay in the hotel as we live very close by but have had very good reports of clean rooms and value for money. Stopped in the bar and had a quick drink and a bite to eat. Staff are very friendly and efficient, the bar was quiet and comfortable able to hear yourself speak and plenty of room,... More

Just stayed one night. Booked a single room for £27.50 which is very good value (although breakfast is extra). Was given a twin room instead, room 2, which was fine except for the door to the en suite bathroom which only small children would be able to walk through without banging their heads...room otherwise fine, nothing fancy but clean and...

Arrived late but we're made very welcome after a long walk. The owner showed us to our room which had recently been decorated so was excellent. Bed were comfortable, tv with a couch to view, tea/coffee, and the bathroom was excellent. It was a Monday night we stayed and they are normally closed,so we were left to our devices. As... More

We recently stayed here for three nights for a family wedding. This is the friendliest place we have ever stayed. The accommodation is clean and homely with everything you need. The hostess Trudy, is amazing and so helpful, nothing we asked for was too much trouble. All the staff were extremely hospitable and we would not hestitate to book again.

Stayed here overnight. So pleased I found this place. Rooms spotless and very spacious. Staff couldn't do enough for us. Will definitely be going again.it makes a big difference when you stay away from home but still feel so comfortable.

The welcome was friendly, the service helpful but not intrusive, the dinner tasty and huge, the room full of character and clean. This is not the place to stay if you expect luxury, or perhaps for a dream romantic getaway, but I wanted something simple and good value and it worked for me. Note that you have to pay extra...

They sell this as a no frills B and B which it is, but no frills does not excuse coffee which is instant, incredibly strong and virtually undrinkable, it does not excuse one of the beds in my twin bedded room having a mattress which you was very lumpy and you could feel the springs though, it does not excuse...

we stayed for 2 night in June so we could attend our Nephews wedding. Upon arrival we couldn't get parked at all, we had been advised that parking was not an issue. A note pinned on the door asked us to ring a mobile number to be checked in, which we did and the manager attended to let us in.... More
