Opted to stay somewhere a bit different, fed up with uniformity of most hotels in this price range. Great place, with very comfy bed and tastefully decorated room. More importantly, really genial and chatty hosts who made us feel totally welcome. Oh and breakfast fantastic, esp the French toast! Will come here again.

Mike and Rowena couldn't have made us more welcome, all needs met. Bed super comfortable. Breakfast wonderful, whether you had a full english or the great fruity continental. We will return in the not too distant future.
