We enjoyed an excellent stay, being met at the door and shown to a room with everything we could need and some little touches to make our stay even better. The bathroom, though being across the hall, fulfilled all our needs and was very pleasant. The best bit was our breakfast which had many options to suit different palates, superbly... More

Hotel is ideally situated just off the town centre. The owner kindly took our cases up the stairs for us. We couldn't park directly outside the hotel as there were no spaces but fortunately there was a car park, not far from the hotel, beside the police station that we could use. The room was lovely and had a modern... More

Friendly and accommodating hosts coped with our late arrival and early 6am departure by giving us some breakfast to eat when we woke. Room clean and tidy. Can't comment on the cooked breakfast as we didn't have one, but will try next time.

My room was beautifully clean and decorated. Very well stocked with teas, coffees and lovely little treats! The shower in the ensuite shower/toilet room was great. breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The B&B is within easy walking distance to the town, which is quaint, with plenty of good bars and eating places. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Stayed here for one night (Friday) doing the Coast to Coast cycle with friends. Cannot recommend it highly enough. The rooms are to a high standard with clean and well maintained en-suite facilities and the bed was very comfortable. We didn't stay for an evening meal but there are a number of pubs and restaurants nearby within a short walking... More
