Our first stay at this hotel, and we were pleasantly surprised. Very tidy and well equipped rooms, very friendly staff and family run. After reading some reviews, we were apprehensive about the food, but the breakfast and dinner meals we had were very very good.We will definitely return.

Hi happyz1999, Thanks for your feedback. I'm very concerned about the issues you have raised. This is certainly not the standard that we require from our staff and establishment in general.
