Fantastic value hotel ! Rooms comfortable, clean and cosy. We had an overnight stay on a DBB basis and the food in the restaurant (both dinner and breakfast) was out of this world. The staff were all very friendly and helpful which contributed immensely to our pleasurable stay. Would we return to this hotel ? In a heartbeat !

Stayed overnight on way to visit family in Newcastle. Room lovely and spotless. Food in restaurant gorgeous. Breakfast best ever scrambled eggs and porridge. Nothing too much trouble for the owner and staff. Will return.

Seven of us stayed here for two nights, absolutely lovely place and the staff are different class especially the blonde lady who gave us our keys.

Lovely restaurant lovely staff lovely food what is not to like. Place is spotless and we'll decorated.

Kids meals are good portions to. But would... More
