Gilbert and the staff were, as always, most welcoming to our group. (Adults with learning disabilities.) Putting everyone at ease, accommodating any special requests for the group. We've already booked our next visit and can't wait to go back to the hotel again later this year.

We visit many hotels over the country, and this one will stand out as a very happy well run one. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff of this family run hotel. The food was very good and beautifully presented. We are hoping go back very soon. Y

A nice inexpensive, centrally located gaff with perhaps not the most up to date decor, but with very comfy beds, great breakfasts and extremely helpful, friendly staff. What more could a traveller on a budget wish for?
