    The breakfast was the best we have had for many years and we have stayed in some luxurious hotels but the breakfast was nothing compared to the one served to us at the Wulfruna hotel.

    The host and owner was very helpful and accommodating to your every need. The breakfast was superb and plentyful. Other options available at breakfast time but the full English is always a must. Highly recommended. Stayed there in August 2023 bank...
