I feel very mean only awarding this hotel 3 stars because the staff, the food and the general service is excellent. The snag with this hotel is however the rooms. I stayed here in a single room and it was VERY small. The room did have a comfortable double bed in it and the T.V. was of good quality. The... More

This family run business is a little gem. Well situated, unpretentious, it delivers. The staff were all long serving, which underlines their quality, nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent, and the entertainment of a very high standard. This is certainly a place to visit again.

Having stayed at this hotel 2 years ago, we guessed our latest visit would be just as enjoyable. We were correct, the welcome is super, the rooms are spotless and the food excellent. We only wished we could have stayed longer. Its home from home.

Spent Easter weekend here as part of a coach party. Whilst I agree that bedrooms and bathrooms are not the largest, however we had three good nights sleep and managed to keep clean! Food was good and we never had any cause to complain, and plenty of reason to compliment. Family run, with good, local and long serving staff, we... More
