We booked the Tilling Suite for 4 adults and a teenager for a New Year break. Very comfortable beds and lovely to have a a lounge area for us to relax in together with a television, fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Cafe downstairs stayed open to cook us a delicious breakfast on New Year's Day....

Warm and welcoming family hosts from the moment we stepped through the door. Beautiful presented, clean, cosy and stylish bedroom. Great value and ideal location. Even the complimentary hot chocolate was delicious! Highly recommended.

Having stayed here for business I couldn't recommend enough. They have always been so helpful and couldn't do enough to ensure we had everything for our stay. So accommodating and the breakfast is amazing. Will definitely return.

An excellent hotel all round, its a shame we couldn't have stayed longer! Modern touches to a hotel with character, friendly staff and the most delicious breakfast. We felt very much at home and nothing was too much trouble. A short walk from the centre with parking near by. Thank you for a lovely stay.

I'm afraid we...
