I booked 3 rooms at the Boswell House Hotel, 5 members of my family stayed there, they were all very impressed by the warm greeting and general attitude of the owners, a very clean and well run establishment and close to town, a very convenient location, I will certainly use this hotel again.

Arriving at teatime on Friday 23rd September after receiving excellent directions, we experienced excellent hospitality throughout our weekend stay. The family room was spacious, very clean and well lit. The breakfasts were excellent too. The small bar was well stocked with a variety of Spirits and Wine. The car park was a godsend being so close to the town centre.
