    The owners went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Would come back in a heartbeat
  • Luca
    Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Kitchen available and complimentary tea/coffee. Good location with plenty to do at short distance, but ideally you’d need a car or bicycle to move around. Good hearty meals and company at the pub, great...

    Rooms are located on the other side of the hotel/bar so are noise free from that part of the hotel. The room is small but a good size for a single person with a comfy bed with plenty of blankets, a dresser, chair & a heater to keep you...

    Loved this place. When we first arrived I thought to myself... gosh this doesn't look appealing But it had a totally homely feeling about it. We both loved it. Would stay there again. There was tea and coffee provided... bowl of fruit......
