The greeting from the owner was very warm and genuine, and set us up perfectly for the stay. We had a large room, with four poster, which was lovely, and the food was very good (we had pork and lamb) plus the cooked breakfast was delightful.

Stayed here for an evening and Clare and graham made us most welcome. Rooms are spacious, beds very comfy and the hotel is spotless. Food is excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend and hope to return soon.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review albeit not a very positive one.
