Staff at this hotel superb, nothing is too much trouble. Family run. The only draw back is that they have extended the front bar area, and no longer has that snug homely feeling. Food very good from breakfast to evening meal. Farmers buffet a little bit of a let down. Bar staff superb. And swimming pool area great. Very close...
