We stayed here for three nights (from 17 September as part of a group. We had a very friendly greeting and were amazed at the size of the room we had - it was old fashioned but comfortable with real old wooden sash windows - which rattled in the gale that was blowing - a judicious stuffing with toilet paper speedily cured the problem!. Spotless with a large bathroom and good shower. Breakfasts were superb as were the evening meals and I can heartlily recommend the local beer - particularly the Raven Bitter. A good wine list kept my husband happy. On the down side the lift was miniscule - but you got good cardiovascular exercise climbing the stairs! As regards teh staff it seemed that nothing was too much trouble. We'd certainly stay there again
