Had a fabulous 4 night stay with my family. The owners are lovely welcoming people. The rooms are super clean and comfortable. There are little added touches that just make your stay more enjoyable. For example, They have washing facilities which is handy when you are travelling. Lots of TV channels. A trampoline for kids which was a real hit. Plenty of parking. An assortment of hot drinks. Warm rooms and plenty of blankets. Daily cleaning and extra towels. Kind staff who treat you like family. Definitely recommend this place.
