Our room had excellent facilities, was spotlessly clean and with lots of thoughtful touches you might expect in a top class Hotel. Our hostess and host, Liz and Iain, were charming and very warm and welcoming. We felt completely at home and nothing was too much trouble to them. Excellent breakfasts, with a range of tastes catered for and special... More

Tea and home made cake on arrival. There was a very roomy guest lounge and breakfast room. We even had home made biscuits and free chocolates. Went to a... More

Since our last visit 3 years ago, Liz and Ian have rearranged the breakfast room and reception area, and what a wonderful improvement. The... More

Great room (ground floor) very large with lots of nice touches, fresh milk, biscuits, bottled water, hairdryer, luggage rack and most importantly a very comfy bed. My other half particularly enjoyed the vast array of reading books supplied in the room too, so much so I now have a lengthy amazon wish list! Fantastic breakfast to boot.

Fresh milk, sweets along with the biscuits, tea and coffee you normally get. There was also a bottle of water. The breakfast were superb, you certainly would not start out hungry.
