We stayed three nights between Christmas and New Year. This small hotel completely surpassed our expectations in levels of comfort and the thought that has gone into making guests feel welcome. The room was spacious and clean with excellent facilities. The bed and linen were extremely comfortable. Downstairs the lounge had an open fire, easy chairs and plenty of books...
