    All was good, nothing to not like

    Very nice bedrooms and en suite with all you need facilities. Comfortable beds, large wardrobe with lots of hangers, dressing table, tv, kettle and hairdryer. Breakfast was good. Hosts very welcoming and friendly. We didn’t use the bar facilities but looked very cosy with all sorts of bar games etc set out. Made us think of staying another night just to try it all out 😊

    It won't be to anyone's taste who is looking for an ultra modern hotel. The shower in our room (2) wouldn't have been suitable for anyone taller than six feet tall.

    This is a traditional British guest house done exactly as it should be. Room was clean and comfortable, Breakfast was excellent and the bar was well priced with a good selection. Also the bar had a fantastic selection of traditional pub games......wish we had stayed another night just so we could have had an evening in there.

    It was an ideal place for our needs and we would go again if in the area.

    Spotlessly clean and a bathroom with a separate shower. Felt very comfortable and homely. An excellent breakfast and in a quiet location, but in walking distance of town. Although we did not use it, there was a bar and lounge area which looked very well stocked with a large selection of drinks. On arrival we were also greeted with a pot of tea and cake, which after a 3 hour plus journey was most welcoming.
