    A lovely warm welcome on arrival from Bob . A lovely room with a very comfortable bed. Great breakfast that set you up for the day.

Each room has a flat screen TV with FreeView, free Wi-Fi wireless internet, a hair dryer, and a hospitality tray with tea, coffee and biscuits. Both rooms have en-suite shower rooms with washbasin and WC. Complementary s...
