“New Management :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Some of the previous reviews did worry me however when I arrived to find the new owners Maxine & Graham all my fears went away.
The owners make this place. They are so welcoming and keen to make your stay the best it can be. Breakfast was varied and used local produce and there was homemade cake in the room, what a nice touch. The rooms were spotless and the location is really perfect.
I understand that they had only moved in three days before my check in and had spent it cleaning the whole house (which is over 4 floors!!!). They have grand plans and im sure that they will be THE place to stay so book early people!

Having read the previous reviews since booking I did approach this with a little trepidation. First thing to say is that there are new owners in who are keen to turn this place around.

Plus side: didn't smell of smoke at all. The room was clean and pleasantly furnished with nice touches such as some home made cake. Breakfast tasty and owners keen to oblige. Good location close to centre amenities.

Minus side: The place in general is a little tired and clearly needs some work which I hope is high on the agenda. Was a little chilly in the evening with no heating but this seems to have been rectified in morning.

Has potential and would urge the owners to fix the basics including the odd front door lock!
