My wife and I stayed here for one night. The room was very beautiful , clean, comfortable and the mini bar reasonably priced. The four poster bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was very good and a wide variety available. Although you are asked to specify your choice of breakfast the night before, it really isn't a problem. And should... More

Our room was lovely as was the hospitality, thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast too. Bathroom was the bonus, we've stayed in a lot of B&Bs of similar star rating and are usually disappointed by a poky bathroom not this time, it was great.
