This is a lovely boutique hotel with just a few rooms but each one immaculately appointed, with lots of fun details in keeping with the theme of a former local jail! Chocolates on the pillow, cookies in the tin and an opulent iron bedstead make the room seem very romantic and luxurious. Your host Tim is a great guy; he's friendly without being overbearing and he's a great cook too. This was our second stay here and the menu seems to be essentially the same as last year - no complaints there though, as it was delicious! A sea food cocktail with a Thai kick, beautifully crispy sea bream with basil mash and a wonderful soft meringue raspberry roulade. The wine list is small but carefully chosen and quite reasonably priced. I love this hotel and we'll definitely be back.
