Business meeting on the fly in a nice location away from the town. Beer's always ( whenever I've been here) well kept and presented. Local ales a speciality. Good food at a reasonable price. bacon and brie baguette lovely.

A pleasant night's stay. There was no problem with arriving early, my room was ready and beautifully appointed. The staff were very friendly and a nice quiet location. A nice, locally sourced breakfast. I would definitely stay again.
