We arrived early evening and were greeted by Des who gave us a brief tour of the premises. We were told to help ourselves to a number of items in the breakfast room if we needed them 'at any time'. The room was impeccably clean and furnished and decorated in a tasteful way. Excellent bathroom facilities as well. Overall an... More

What a lovely, lovely stay. From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome with a pot of tea and lemon drizzle cake. The room was absolutely first rate, very cozy and immaculately clean and the breakfast is delicious with any extras catered for, we will definitely be going back.
