They say that all the best things come in small packages and this is so true of this lovely hotel. I cannot praise the warmth and hospitality highly enough.

Lovely warm welcome, staff are very friendly and helpful. Quirky clean rooms with lovely comfy beds. We also had tapas on the terrace which was delicious and we were served by a friendly polite young man. Will definitely recommend and return!
