The room was a good size with lovely windows filling it with light. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was spacious with a nice bath and shower over it. Everything was immaculately clean. The staff were friendly, extremely helpful and went out of their way to help, even asking the chef to accommodate my dietary requirements. The food was delicious, especially the desserts. The measures taken to make the hotel covid secure were thorough and we felt completely at ease moving around the hotel and in the dining room. We would definitely return and recommend anyone to stay here.

Had a week long stay while working in the area during the covid pandemic and couldn’t have asked for more. Warm welcome and great food delivered to the room each evening. Hotel adhered to all guidelines and rooms were thoroughly cleaned, quiet and spacious. Will be my first choice if working in the area again.

Just had a great stay in this hotel. Friendly welcoming owners (andMax) who made our break pretty well perfect. Food was first rate with an excellent choice even with a restricted menu. Our dog was also given a treat for breakfast and loved the hotel surroundings. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable with hairdryer and iron provided. We will happily return for future holidays here. All Covid precautions were in place. Congratulations to Phil and Lesley for giving us such a great break.
