As a couple my partner and I stayed here. We found the hostess, Pat, a little bit loud and schoolteacher-esque at first but she is actually very thoughtful. The breakfasts are wonderful, Les makes really tasty scrambled eggs and the porridge was very welcome on a rainy September morning.
We found it a little far to walk over into the town centre but parking on the main street is plentiful. Probably wouldn't stay again because the decor wasn't really to our tastes, but apart from that the hosts couldn't have done more for us.
