I do give the benefit of the doubt as the owners are new. Unfortunately... More

Overall I consider this to be reasonable value at the price charged £60. One gets the impression that the new owners (from 5 weeks ago) haven't had the chance to catch their breath yet. We were made welcome even if you were asked to pay in full as you arrived. We were shown to our 1st floor room which had... More

Excellent staff, very clean, good food, evening meal superb. Terrific area. Only down side heating did not work all the time in our room. Lower floor rooms nice and warm though, but not too sure if the room downstairs (were the bar was) was for residence general use as owners used it too. Understand the owners have only just moved...

Took my mother here for a 3 night break to celebrate her birthday. Steve and Jose were very friendly and the guest house was in great location, very clean and breakfast/ evening meal was beautiful. It was a lovely relaxing break and have recommended it to family. I will definitely be returning.

We had read the reviews after we booked a room and almost cancelled because of some of the comments. However we just want to say that as far as our experience goes we had a great time. We were warmly welcomed and our room (room 3) had a wonderful view of the river and surrounding woodland. We were convenient for... More
