"Friendly staff, quaint hotel, excellent breakfast, excellent restaurant."
Booked 2 nights for a stay around a family wedding as did several other members of the family. The staff were, from begining to end, friendly and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean, it was small but who cares when all you are going to do is sleep there. We had a meal in the restaurant which was delicious, again friendly staff. The included breakfast had a varied and appetizing selection. You can even get a good cup of coffee. Read less

Likes:
All the staff were very friendly and attentive. Breakfast was extremely varied and tasty! Even had GF options.
Location is perfect to be able to wonder around the town and parking just round the back
Dislikes:
Room was a bit hot despite windows being open all day, but not unbearable. Room was a bit dusty, but again, not too bad.

The new traditional looking restaurant is very relaxing and comfortable. The Restaurant provides excellent service to both residents and non-residents and offers a very high standard of cuisine with sophisticated A'la Carte menus and seriously good bar food.

The restaurant is open each day for diners seeking a leisurely meal in comfortable surroundings or business people requiring quiet and discreet surroundings with excellent food and fine wines.

At the end of the day the candlelit atmosphere of the restaurant provides the perfect setting for an intimate dinner party...Please ensure you book in advance should you wish to dine with us.
