The hotel is quite a nice place to stay. Breakfast was good and plentiful. The room was clean with a comfy bed. The shower was a little bit small, not a big door to get in. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

Hi lkrmusic - thanks for letting us know about your stay.

It's an interesting point about the shower. We have range of different ones in the hotel, some square, some curved and some with baths, so naturally some are larger than others. If anyone reading this is concerned about shower-space, call us when you book and we'll try and allocate your room accordingly.

Thanks again for the feedback - we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Best regards, Alistair

Good home cooked food and very fair prices. We returned early from a muddy bike ride around the Island and dropped in for a sandwich and cuppa. They even offered to let us sit inside covered in mud but we declined and instead they provided towels for us to sit on outside. Great hospitality and open at 07:30 hours on a Sunday. Fantastic place and now a regular stop off.

Right from when we walked in the staff were amazing Elliott the barman is a very polite chap and nothing is to much trouble for him. Angel is great too and a good chef.
Everyone says that it's basic. It is a little but the price reflects that. It's clean tidy and the shower is great. The food is reasonably cheap and a proper home cooked evening meal and a decent breakfast. What more can you ask for. I will definitely be returning.

Room 212 top of the shop. Nice triple room. Comfy bed , good brekkie in the aqua cafe very friendly and helpful staff. Has a good bar at reasonable prices. Shower worked well and was nice and hot. Plenty of sockets so could charge my electronic stuff. Has a wet kit store at rear that is secure.

High end of budget hotel would be a good description.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms to be honest as have stopped in most .
