Very clean, comfortable, spacious and friendly. The family and staff who run the hotel are charming and helpful in a genuine way. Evening entertainment is good and the bar is well stocked. Breakfast is good, but only served from 8.30-9.00am on our visit, although a request to the staff for an alternative time can be made.

Stayed here with family. Beds were very comfortable and the morning breakfast was tasty. Especially impressed with the enthusiasm of the staff who were very friendly and helped us with our bags. Only issue I had was with the WiFi which we couldn't receive in our room, but this was fairly minor in comparison to the rest of our stay.... More

Thank you for taking time to write a review on your stay here at the hotel. It's great to see you had a good time. Unfortunately Wifi in the hotel is difficult to pick up in certain areas of the hotel due to the age of the building and the thickness of the walls. We have tried several suggested methods... More
