Booked for a Saturday night stay. Friendly welcome and room very clean, tidy and comfortable. Good selection for breakfast and the full English was nicely cooked. Free off-road parking and WiFi. Not far to walk to some good local restaurants. Liked it.

The ground floor room would be suitable if your mum ha mobility problems the shower has grab handles and is easy to get into . I think it can be a double or twin but I do not think there is a lift to the other floors
