Stayed for 2 night break, staff very friendly and welcoming throughout the weekend, rooms very clean and tidy, nice comfy beds, maybe a little up-dating possibly needed in places, but for the price we paid it was more then acceptable and was spotlessly clean. Breakfast superb along with the staff. Thank you for an enjoyable stay, will definitely return.
