I'm just home from a lovely Saturday night at this hotel.From the moment we walked in until the time we left the owners and staff were excellent. They were all very friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 15 at the top of the stairs which was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Just watch your head on the low ceiling as you walk down the stairs!!
The hotel is under going some renovation and upgrading but this did not detract from our stay.
The food in the dining room was very good as was the breakfast in the morning.
Would we return to this hotel? A very resounding yes. I hope the new owners make a success of the business and I look forward to returning later in the year to see the upgrades that have been made.
