If you are happy to go back in time and be treated how it used to be, then this is the place for you. We found a very warm welcome when we arrived with two kids and a dog. The rooms were warm and clean. Need to be aware that there are no ensure toilets or bathrooms but there are plenty to go round. Next time we will try out the Victorian working shower! Lots of open fires downstairs and a games room, including pool table for the kids. Dinner came as a three or five course dinner and was lovely and served properly, very well presented using regional produce. Coffee served in the resident's lounge and a good selection of wines, beers and spirits. Breakfast again was served just as it should be and again featured local produce. Lots of choice including haddock, kippers and full Welsh breakfast. You can have a pack lunch made up and then you are ready to tackle the hills. It is a long time since I have stayed in a hotel or guest house where I have seen such a friendliness and genuine interest in our hosts. I would definelty return and recommend this hotel for others.
