Stayed here for one night at short notice. Me and my partner went to thd RNLI motorbike charity event. The hotel is beautifully clean, we were made really welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast good and plenty, cereals and yoghurt cooked breakfast and unlimited toast and jams. Will definitely stay again.
