The owners are nice and nothing was a problem for them. The rooms are new and clean. The breakfast was fair, nothing to write about and has space to improve. We... More

Nick and Denise are very genuine and welcoming. They took the trouble to make sure that all our needs were catered for. Nick has a fine selection of real ales in the bar and the meals were of a high standard. Very impressed with room cleanliness. Will stay here again. Phil

Last minute one night stay. Made to feel welcome immediately introduced to and interacted with the locals.Room very comfy with the advantage of a microwave and a fridge, not usual in b+bs. Fresh fruit including really sweet tomatoes, a nice touch. Mints and complimentary soaps all nice little touches. Ate a banging dinner that night, recommend the rack of lamb... More

Friendly bar, fantastic food. Bedroom was actually a large suite with separate lounge, kitchen complete with oven, microwave, fridge. Nick and Dee were incredibly welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. We were treated like long lost friends rather than hotel guests. The food was also excellent - we went in hoping for good pub food, to be met with... More

Nick and Denise were the perfect hosts - nothing was any bother for them - they worked so hard to please the customers. Had a superb perfectly cooked evening meal and the best breakfast of the trip... More

Whole experience from start to finish was brilliant. When we arrived we were upgraded from a twin room to a suite with our own kitchen, separate living room and bathroom. The suite was lovely and clean and has a nice view over the downstairs terrace. Nick and Denise were great, couldn't do enough for us and spoilt our dogs with... More
