This is a lovely, individual old fashioned sort of hotel - no chrome and plastic here. The welcome is warm and genuine and you feel more like house guests than paying customers. French is spoken at the hotel (maybe other languages too) if needed and I would recommend dinner as Johanna is a great cook. Inexpensive at £85 B&B per couple. Chris will help you the selection of malt whiskies or real ales if you need. Comfortable guest lounge if you want to relax after a busy day (or to dry off). WiFi not reliable in the bedrooms but sometimes works - works OK downstairs so maybe a booster is required. We found the double bed a little small so it wasn't so easy to sleep although mattress and linens great. Aspiring hoteliers or restaurateurs could go there for a training course on what excellent service should be like.
