Facilities were amazing, first time I've been provided with straighteners! The bathroom was also lovely, really big and clean, although there was no shower.... More

Nice, friendly place to stay. Large and well equipped room, more than adequate for our needs. Good selection of cereals, toast and a nice cooked breakfast, only improvement would be better quality coffee.

Went for a quick overnight stay here and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. This was lke staying at your favourite Aunties house. Lovely comfortable room and spotlessly clean. Pubs within 1 minutes walking distance. Jo was such a warm and welcoming host and her breakfasts were delicious. We will DEFINITELY be back again soon.
