The accommodation was very clean and tidy and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Everything we needed was in the room that we needed. The only thing that was not very satisfactory was it was a very small washbasin and not easier to get between the shelf and the basin and no way could you fill the kettle supplied... More

Liz was very welcoming and the place was very clean and comfortable. The room not the largest but everything was there. There was a big selection at breakfast and the pancakes were delicious. It was surprisingly easy to find a parking space.
