We visited last weekend with two friends. Unfortunately we could only stay on the Saturday night due to my elderly Mum being in hospital after a fall. The first thing I need to mention is that we were using a voucher which actually ran out at the end of March. Unfortunately we had to cancel an earlier booking due to family illness. The hotel management were happy to let us have the same deal despite the voucher being out of date. I have never had this happen before and it is to their credit. The hotel is small and quaint but the welcome is warm! Out rooms were small (the shower rooms even smaller!)
We ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent and well priced. The breakfast was excellent, tasty and well cooked. All in a lovely place in a pretty village. I would like to mention Rachel who seems to work endless hours but is always smiling and is a credit to the hotel. Nothing too much trouble for her.
