Myself and my wife stayed here for a couple of days while attending our friends wedding. We found the room to be clean and tidy and very comfortable, and would stay here again without thought, we would also recommend to friends and family. And the breakfast was superb.

The bad points were that on arriving there was no one in reception so the... More
