After an initial problem when our sat nav sent us up the wrong lane we found the car park which is a good size for a guest house and were warmly welcomed.

My friend and I shared a twin room. It was nicely furnished, clean and comfortable. The owner was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was very good, we were asked what time we would like to eat so that our cooked breakfast would be ready. There was plenty of option for cereal, fruit etc. Parking was a little bit of a squeeze,...

What a great great guest house this is. Spotless in cleanliness, wonderful polite and couldn't be more helpful owner, food top class. If I am ever in this area I will stay here first. Don't bother with so called top class hotels and their inflated price, stay here for service with an smile and what service they provide.

We stayed over the previous weekend and were met by the proprietor (Tim) who booked us in, took our breakfast order and helped with a local restaurant. The room had just about every extra you would need, I.e. cotton buds, bath robes, tooth brushes etc. A bit of road noise (I chose this hotel for closeness to A1 so absolutely...
