Although this is called a hotel, it's really a bed and breakfast. The proprietor is a friendly older man who always wears an apron (ready to cook something up on request). There is an old-timey gentlemen's lounge with a full bar, although you still get the feeling that you're in someone's living room. A full English breakfast was served free of charge and on demand. The room was spacious, clean and lacking none of the important amenities.
The selling point here is the hospitality and warmth that you receive during your visit. We came in to the hotel at around 10:30 p.m. with no reservation and got the last room available. The proprietor (and his friendly dog) were welcoming. He quoted us a very reasonable price of 60 pounds and told us to pay him on our way out the next morning. He didn't even ask for a credit card for security, which made us feel very welcome.
This is a quite place, and no suitable if you're wanting to stay up late and party. For our purposes, at the end of a long day of travel, it was perfect. Highly recommended.
