Stayed here for two nights, we were well received and shown to a comfortable room with a good view. The room was clean, comfortable and warm. The breakfast was excellent.After returning from a wet walk Jasmine was happy to see to having our boots dried and ready for us the next day.Having a parking space was also an added bonus.
