A truly excellent English Hotel. Ian & Craig could not have been more helpful and went the extra mile to make our stay even more enjoyable - despite the weather!

Reviewed 27 March 2007

We have just had 2 nights in the hotel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The service and attention to detail is very good, the bedrooms are comfortable and well specified. We were warned that the room could be a little cold but an additional heater was supplied so we could overcome this. Actually made a change not to be boiled to death overnight as quite honestly most hotels are too hot!
The hotel is quite but is near enough to the harbour to enable a lively evening out if that is what you are after.
Stay here and enjoy

The hotel was just as we anticipated it to be,the four poster room we occupied was excellent, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable.

The breakfasts are excellent with everything catered for and very tasty(and filling)-we can also assure everyone who reads the (very disappointed review) that there are definitely no grey eggs and we know as we sampled fried/poached and scrambled so we speak from experience.

Ian & Craig are excellent hosts who did all they could to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing, we will be going back later this year.
Thanks Ian & Craig for a great anniversary break.
