Had a 2 night break at the end of May 2016. Lovely hotel. Staff very friendly and attentive. Food in the restaurant was top quality. Room was comfortable. Only downside was the car park. A bit tight if you have a big car!

The staff, food and room were all wonderful. One of the best meals I've had for a long time. Amazing local fish. Breakfast was delicious too. The rooms have been refurbished to a high standard and are all individual. Would love to go back.
