    Lovely little boutique hotel. Plenty of choice for breakfast - centrally located. Staff were very welcoming. The only downside is that the room could get warm in the nights and breakfast was slightly crowded

    We had a very tasty lasagne, served with garlic bread and a bottle of house white. Staff were courteous and friendly. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, being situated in the old wine cellar. Definitely worth a visit.
