Lovely hotel with a down to earth 4star service, efficient and pleasent.
Not easy to find from the motorway, signs should be posted on the road some distance earlier to warn the customer.
I normally spend around 20 days per month in hotels around the world but this, has a home feeling,relaxing atmosphere and is quite nice to sleep with the noises of the countryside
