Perfect place to unwind, lovely spacious room, very comfy bed & sofa with bottle opener & glasses provided so very easy to take a time-out after hectic weeks leading up to a wedding.

Lovely little hotel! Made to feel very welcome. Comfy room, with extra touches such as swan shape towels, biscuits and a bottle opener. Nice hot shower, plenty of towels and bed was comfy. Breakfast was cooked very well, poached eggs done great (this often lets a hotel down for me!), and really happy, friendly staff. This is how a business...
