A peaceful location and what could be a nice property if more attention were paid to it. Bright large bedroom and bathroom with good facilities. Parking was difficult at the weekend. The Lounge needs cleaning and is drab. The dining room is well located but staff need to clean under the chairs after the table has been used. The food was not good - tiny breakfast with a gone off sausage and dinner was not very nice as they don't have many diners and so do not keep a full time chef - I think the receptionist cooked the food. The staff are very friendly and this is what the owner hides behind. If he spent as much time looking after his business as he does answering the tripadvisor comments he would do better.
