Really enjoyed our stay. Was made even better by the exceptionally warm and friendly staff on site. Location of hotel made it easy for my wife and I to enjoy a spot of sight seeing and visiting friends. We had a brilliant stay. Thank you and hope to visit again in the future.

Really nice place to stay an staff very accommodating, food was outstanding. The room was basic and a little on the small side but clean. We felt the drinks were pricey which let it down a little. Staff were friendly and helpful. The proprietors were lovely and took the time to have a chat with us on more than one...

Very kind, helpfull staff. Nice historic building - as a result you'll have to watch your head and the bathroom may not be really modern, but for me the building's atmosphere easily compensates. And finally: great food, good kitchen and cook - way above average!

Our aim is to make your stay with us relaxing and enjoyable.
