When we arrived we were made welcome by the owners and was shown to our room which was very clean and pristine with quality bedding and en suite. Breakfast was served in the dinning room and was wonderful with a comprehensive menu. With a central location it is the perfect place to stay.

We stayed in one of the superior double rooms which was fantastic. It was really clean, spacious, had aircon, and a fridge with complimentary bottles of water every day was a nice touch. The breakfasts were great and the hosts were lovely. Couldn't have asked for anywhere better. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed at hotel for a weekend with my wife. I cannot fault the hotel, absolutely spotless. Cooked breakfast was tops. The owners were on hand for advice on where to eat. Only a ten minute walk to town centre, if you are a less mobile than the average person the walk maybe too far. Would definitely go back.

Thank paul w
