Despite some negative reviews on Tripadvisor, we really loved our stay in this charming old hotel. (We can only assume some people get their kicks from sniping...)
The building was set back in trees and looked beautiful with the frosting of snow. It was full of character, warmed by open fires and so quiet. We had a large, four poster room and big clean bathroom. The hearty breakfast was delicious and due to KGB deal it was all really good value for money.
Thanks to Forestside for a great break away and don't believe the negative moaners on here!
