Well our check in experience was very smooth - I had forgotten my glasses - so thank you for the "just sign here Diane" Charlotte was the perfect hostess. As always the food was excellent.

Had a short stay here last weekend. Fantastic room! Definitely not a formula hotel, and the staff are great. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, and very friendly. We were visiting friends that live nearby for a re-union, but plan on coming back. It feels like the hub of a very friendly village. Lovely food too.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to write your review giving me chance to respond to your comments.
