We had broken down in our car & we had 2, 80+ year old people in the car with us. We needed to find somewhere where they could sit & use your facilities while we waited for the breakdown services. We came across this hotel & they made us very welcome

Stayed for two days, a very pleasant stay. The hotel has obviously had a lot of investment and although the refurb is ongoing it is not obtrusive. Fabulously comfy bed, nice decor, good breakfast. Only downside was price of drinks in the bar and lack of staff to serve at the end of the evening. Otherwise thoroughly recommend the place.
