Myself and 2 friends booked here for 1 night, wish we could have stayed longer, as it was a lovely stay. The first thing I noticed was the friendly and helpful staff. The room was perfect, very clean and well maintained and extremely comfortable. The only complaint I had was the room was too hot. Overall it exceeded my expectations...

Rooms were en suite. Ours had a patch where it appears the shower taps were, not a great repair but not directly in site so no problem. We needed to print something but the hotel PC was not connecting to the printer. The manager called the other hotel and arranged for us to go there to print. The owner was...

Really lovely B&B, pretty much everything you could hope for and a bargain for the price. Rooms are not huge but are very nicely decorated and clean, big bathroom with a decent shower, tea making facilities in the room, nice bed linen/towels. There's a cute living room downstairs if you want to use it. I read some reviews that said...
