Pauline and Anthony were fantastic hosts at Court Prior, both had extensive knowledge of the area which was very helpful, when choosing restaurants and places of interest. The rooms were spacious and very clean, and the breakfast was second to none, with a wide variety of choice.

Lovely spacious, clean accommodation. Owners really friendly and helpful. Great breakfast with loads of choice. High up so lots of steps if walking to town but good parking facilities at the hotel and easy to drive down if you don't want to walk.
