    Nice enough, nothing special though but reasonably priced and the location is nice so I'd recommend it for anyone looking for a clean, solid B&B. The host was really friendly. Rooms good size, comfy beds, fridge was a bit noisy. I'd certainly stay here again.

    Room was clean, owners were welcoming and friendly, close to town easy parking. We would recommend this hotel due to the location and owners. It was great to wander over the road to meet the ponies 😎

    Breakfast is not automatically included in the booking/price of a room. We wanted to leave early, so did not pay for breakfast as they don't start serving until 8.
