We went for a romantic weekend, we were placed in one of the older rooms at the front of the hotel. The radiator in the room was scalding hot and the heat in the room was suffocating ( this was Feb). Leaving the windows open made little difference and the noise of pub goers and traffic on the Main Street... More

Reception had told us on phone to turn right at the bank and then right again round... More
