We arrived at the Knockomie Hotel at 4pm on a Friday afternoon for a two night stay. First impressions were very positive, the building is impressive, dating from the early 19th century with further extensions during the early 20th century. The décor is a mixture of period and modern sympathetically used. We were warmly welcomed by John the hotel manager...
