We stayed here over the bank holiday weekend. It was a last minute decision. The hotel was spotless, the breakfast was very good, the bar stayed open till every one went to bed. The host and hostess were really friendly and helpful too. All in all, a great weekend. Highly recommended. 😎

We reserved a car parking space but then got told that it was £5 a night! Overall, not too bad. Stayed in much worse in Blackpool but also...
