New and polite owners currently refurbishing this hotel!
Our Grab-one voucher for dinner, a one-night stay and breakfast made our stay here nice and affordable!
The food was quite excellent, good menu choice and bar and very good portion sizes! The owners were also friendly and polite!
The bathroom was small, the showers were poor and the decor made it seem like we had stepped into the Cluedo boardgame...."Where's breakfast?...with Prof Plum, in the dining room, with the candlestick!"
However, the hotel is clean, comfortable (particularly comfortable beds) and warm!
An update, a lick of paint and some more atmosphere could transform this well situated hotel from a creepy boardgame to a lovely cosy retreat!
