Once inside and having meet Thomas; a friendly and excitable dog, we relaxed with a drink in the welcoming and well decorated bar area while meeting the friendly husband and wife team who run the hotel. We'd hired out 3 rooms,...

“I have stayed in a few of their different rooms and all are comfortable. Some are bigger than others, i dont really care about the size since i dont go there to spend time in the room but if you wanted a bigger room just ask and if they accommodate they will. They have a nice sized family room at the top which i think can accommodate up to 5-6 people.”
