We paid for the bungalow out back, was cosy and very warm. Tv annoyed me as the tv would do its own thing. Was clean and friendly and the staff could not do enough to help you. The cleaner was chirpy and would check to ask if there was anything we needed. The owners were very lovely and even bring...

We booked for one night on our way to Ireland. The first chalet we were given had not been cleaned at all. One bed had a dirty tissue in it and there was dirty underwear in a drawer. We were moved to another one and that too was not clean. The third one was ok,extremely basic but clean.

I stayed here with a group of bikers & were in the annex rooms over looking the car park which was handy for the safety of the bikes. The rooms are clean, tidy & pleasant. Only gripe I can say was the TV didn't work, but think that was due to batteries in remote dead, not a big deal as...

Budget stay but very clean room good offroad parking we travelled by motorcycle and I felt safe leaving the bikes. Our accommodation was an annexe to the rear of the main building which provided a quiet and detached area from the bustle of the small public bar at the front. Very clean bedding, all nice and fresh, tea and coffee...

I had a one night stop here on way to Ireland. I booked this inn as was cheapest I could find on the Internet. As such, I was not expecting much at all. So I arrived with some trepidation, and was very very pleasantly surprised. What's good: The room was large, bright, clean, ensuite, with kettle / mugs / tea...
