We visited with friends, our rooms were very clean, decorated and furnished beautifully. Given it was a bank holiday weekend we found the management and staff to be friendly. Very reasonable tariff, homely ans welcoming pub plus a lovely breakfast. Definitely would stay again.

Looked OK from outside. No music or atmosphere inside which would have made it instantly more friendly. Girls working were friendly enough but zero interaction with guests (first thing you should do when someone walks in - the people working are the face of the business) Asked for sandwiches to be plain (for a child) with no salad and some...

It was about a year since our last visit when we had already noticed improvements. This time was even better. The welcome offered to visitors is warm and friendly and the land-lady even remembered us from last year which is an amazing feat of memory and a wonderful example of customer care. The room was bright and fresh with very... More

We enjoyed a lunch there and the food was very good as well as the local beers. The hotel is well located close to the car park and that makes it very conveniënt. The staff is friendly and very helpful, so it's a recommendation to stay there or to have a meal and some drinks.
