We stayed here recently for two nights for an extended family celebration. The food on both nights was really good (and a huge selection to choose from on the menu, from steaks to Thai prawns to fish and chips etc.), and with attentive, friendly service. Even though we were a large group, all the food was served swiftly and, more importantly, was hot when it reached each person. The owner/manager was very much in evidence from morning to night, and very hands-on, always a good sign. He obviously takes pride in his hotel, and his staff have the same attitude towards customer service. The reception area, open fires and large bar area were very welcoming, and there was live trad music over the weekend too. Our double bedroom had a double and a single bed, and was very spacious indeed, and although located over the entrance to the hotel we were not disturbed by any noise whatsoever. If we had any criticism, it was the temperature in the room - a little on the chilly side! The bathroom, though a little dated, was perfectly adequate, with a good powerful shower and plenty of space for washbags etc. We would definitely recommend this hotel for its location, friendliness and good food - and hope to be back there again some time!
