The breakfasts leave very little room for improvment...

An excellent and efficient welcome, perfect room, delightful stay. Breakfast top class and all top standard throughout. We particularly liked the overall impression of a professionally run establishment where nothing would be too much trouble. Host made helpful suggestions and booked our restaurant which was great.
