Home from home
I have stayed at this hotel before but not for a while. However it was nice when checking in that they remembered me and made me feel very welcome as always. Great room, fantastic bed and probably thecbest breakfast I've had in years.

Our little getaway
We enjoyed our stay very much even though it was just the one night. The staff were friendly and helpful and the neals were very good.It was quite a quirky hotel inside as it is pretty old but the fire doors were very prevelent as we climbed to the top floor. The outside terrace at the back was good and there were heaters over the tables in the area nearest the entrance at the back so we could sit outside comfortably even after the sun went down.

Quirky, Homely and Generous Hospitality!
We experienced great hospitality upon arrival and at a very generous breakfast the following morning. We enjoyed the quirky atmosphere of the place, inside and out! The staff treated us like old friends and made us feel very much at home. It was great to have a lie-in and a late breakfast with check-out at 11am. All at a very reasonable inclusive price too! Highly recommended!
