Breakfast served on last day by an uber bubbly Raimanda. Also Christina on reception could not have been more helpful. Two minor gripes though - keycards kept malfunctioning but Christina sorted...

We also got to witness the gathering of a local wedding party to be wed the next day. Friendly atmosphere, very welcoming. Only change I would make is to add the... More

My wife and I stayed here overnight on 25th June 2016. Nice, somewhat quaint, place. Room was basic but very clean and comfortable. Combined bar and restaurant was also basic but has a warm friendly atmosphere and great food. Staff were excellent, very pleasant, friendly and customer focussed. Great breakfast. Good value for money.
