          Neat, very warm, staff is efficient and friendly. Price reasonably well. It's no 5star but you will enjoy a good night's rest. The view however is of 5 star quality, a fishing lake with boats and ducks wondering about.

          We enjoyed our stay, good service and friendly people. We used the Dinner Bed and Breakfast and the food was excellent. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We can recommend any time.
