We stayed here several times in the past and always found it excellent value and very welcoming. However, that was some time ago and sadly, the same cannot be said of it now. The bedroom was acceptable though certainly not luxurious and the shower worked well. The first disappontment was on the first morning. In the past, we had an excellent cooked breakfast, prepared and served by a real character but this time, only cereal, toast and tea or coffee were available. I hope the the bread had been in the freezer because it was well past its sell-by date. There was no butter either which was a shame for those people unlucky enough to react badly to margarine. At least the margarine was in an individual sealed container, unlike the second morning when it was simply in a couple of open bowls. There were hardly any cereals on the second morning either so we simply gave up and left. The chap on reception was sympathetic but couldn't provide anything else, although he did promise that butter woul be available the next time. My mate told him not to bother as there certainly wouldn't be a next time. The owners were so friendly and helpful last time we stayed there but this time, they seem to have abandoned the staff.
