What a lovely welcome we had. The rooms are very well appointed with a great selection of tea/coffee and even night time tea. Also lots of lovely biccies, fresh water in a carafe and fresh milk in a thermos. Other little touches like a torch supplied and earplugs, as well as the code for the wi-fi. Our hosts were very attentive and full of interesting information..
The bed was very comfortable with a decent quality quilt and pillow - so comfortable.
Breakfast - what a delight. The table was laid old English style. Jam spoons and beaded covers for the juices. A great selection of cereals, fresh fruit and free access to the toaster. The breakfast choice was huge and came out on a trolley - plenty all round, with tea/coffee freshened up as required.
Shame about the main road - but you know - I didn't care because I was so comfortable. I would have loved to have seen the premises at their peak.
Thank You for a lovely stay - thoroughly recommend a stay.
