Very helpful staff with a wealth of knowledge about the island. The rooms were very clean with a amazing shower and the breakfast was great value. Has plenty of parking around the hotel and is within walking distance of restaurants and bars!

We stayed in the hotel on a wet and rainy day. arrived in soaked with a child and wet dog in tow. Fiona on reception was exceptional, even to the point of taking our wet boots and placing them in their laundry room to dry out and supplying treats and entertaining chat for our daughter. Room was clean and comfortable.... More

Room was clean and tidy and the view excellent.Sraff ok. Other than that, it was certainly not worth the overinflated price. Common areas smelt of cleaning products. Lots of warnings about... More

We stayed for one night and found that the staff were very helpful and friendly. The room we were given was large although the cost was a little higher than we had been used elsewhere on our drive around the UK. The room itself was clean with good facilities and a comfortable bed. A bit of a minus was that... More

Srayed here for one night this weekend. Lovely clean room and excellent food. Had dinner and breakfast, both delicious and excellent quality. Breakfast service in particular was very attentive and possibly the best steak n ale pie ive ever tasted. Will definitely return.

I stayed here for 4 nights in February 2014 on a business trip. The thing that struck me most of all is how exceptionally clean the room and the hotel in general was. Even where you expect a little dust, on the tops of pictures and the like, there was none. The room itself faced out onto the road, but... More
