They have started offering accommodation and food again so we thought we’d try out the new menu as it is a few years since our last visit. I feel compelled to write a review as it has changed so...

I had this place recommended, as nice but a bit dated. Staff are great. Only issue was, it has Bed and Breakfast advertised to the rear! I spent a few nights here and I have to say, I wont be back. I found that each morning, I could not exit the property using the normal route, as the firedoor was... More

Was booked in for a week whilst working away from home, didn't last the first night slept in my van. The room and bathroom was dirty and the bedding smelt, no mattress protector. As I was shown to my room there was a load of rubbish left on the stairs, health & safety would have a field day. Nothing appetising... More

I stayed here for one night. Well, actually I left just before 2 a.m. after being woken by my "bed mates".

Stayed here when going to a wedding. Fantastic tapas meal. Room ok.....you get what you pay for. Some noise from the road but nothing some ear plugs did not solve. Disappointing breakfast...not cooked just an apple, croissant and orange juice!!??? I wish this was made clearer when we booked.....but if you are looking for cheap and cheerful it was ok.

Went to eat here for the first time and was pleasantly surprised.As we had heard that the chef was Spanish we decided to try the Tapas.We ordered a selection between the two of us but we could have fed one or two more as the portions were generous.Highly recommend the prawns in garlic.and I personally enjoyed the Sangria !!!
