We went for a Sunday night stay, just us and one other couple were staying there. It was very clean, tidy and well decorated. Very comfy bed, a tasty breakfast in the morning. Good location and a car park tucked away behind, beware low riding cars, there isn't much clearance ;) it is on the more expensive side of the...

Dear pk_1878, Thank you for your very kind review. I so apologise for the entry road to the car park but, hopefully, our neighbours will put it right after the build of the house is finished. I do hope you will be back one day so you can experience our restaurant and bar as well. Kind regards, Evelyn

What a lovely hotel, great location, fantastic staff and great food. My girlfriend, who is a vegetarian, said the fish and chips was one of the best she had ever had.
