Back again for our yearly bash, more of the same great accommodation and great breakfasts from Fay. Easy parking outside the door, dump the bags and off round town. We have already reserved our room for next year. Looking forward to next year already.

The owner was very helpful when we booked and this was one of the few places we could find that would take a booking for just the one night (Friday). The reviews were good and the location was ideal for... More

Great location if you are going to the Voodoo Lounge as its just a short 2 minute walk over the road. This hotel is also really close to the town just a short 5 minute walk away. We arrived at...
