It is the friendliest place with the loveliest staff who will go out of their way to make your stay more comfortable. The rooms I've stayed in have always been clean with plenty of space, they all felt really homey - which...

Stayed here for a one night stopover during an End to end cycle ride. The owner were friendly, but the accommodation was fairly basic. Tea and coffee in room, but no extras such as biscuits or hairdryer. No TV in room, but guest lounge available. Single room really tiny.

We stopped here as one of our places on the coast to coast route. A quirky and homely abode where Steve and Joanne made us very welcome. The room was fairly small but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with much choice. Our friend's dog (who was travelling with us) was also made to feel very welcome. We were...

This is inexpensive and fairly basic accommodation. It's clean and very welcoming. We had a small double bedroom with a really comfortable bed and a good shower with plenty of hot water. All the basics were supplied like tea and coffee etc. Breakfast was absolutely fine. The owners were warm and friendly and knowledgeable about where to eat nearby. There's...

Great welcome and hosts are very approachable and helpful. Free wifi available. No TV in the room but there is a big TV and lots of comfy chairs and sofas in the guest lounge. Decor is rather tired and dated. Road noise from M6 can be heard but we had chosen to stay here because it was convenient for the...

We booked the hotel for a one night stay after a family meal in the lakes. On arrival a little panic set in, the general feel is cluttered & basic. As we arrived late we headed straight to the room, with no TV and a mismatched furniture choice it raised an eyebrow or two. After a comfy night though and...
