Great hotel, lovely and quirky, ancient and homely. Everything was spotless, and the staff could not have been more friendly. The breakfast was worth staying for on its own, you can't beat real free range eggs!

Stayed with a colleague and the staff, service and food were all good. But my colleague had someone enter his room about 01:00 in the morning obviously using a key. The visitor apologised and left immediately. When we discussed this in the morning i decided to try my room key in his lock and it also opened his door, not...

Good central location Small family run hotel. Very friendly owners and staff. Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable with plenty of storage space. Food was excellent, especially the bar menu, however the breakfast was somewhat strange. No fruit juices, cereals or fruit laid out to help yourselves and had to be ordered. This was ok when the owners...
