Stayed here with my boyfriend for two nights while attending a wedding at nearby Taitlands. Perfect location for this; only 5-10 minute walk from the venue so if you are a wedding guest, you can't get closer. Parking is provided which was great for our rental car.
Lovely cosy rooms, comfy and clean. Beautiful stained glass windows are a definite feature. The room and en suite were small but perfect for what we needed. Plenty of tea/coffee and fresh milk provided.
Had both dinner and breakfast there and both were sizeable and delicious. You get big portions and it is great value. Everything is cooked to order and the staff are so obliging.. As bridesmaid I had to leave early the morning of the wedding but they ensured I was fed even though this meant rushing them outside of standard breakfast hours... Much appreciated!
The hosts were wonderful; even staying up to rescue two lost wedding guests that were found in lashing rain in a phone box down the road.
As the bathroom was quite small, I think the room could definitely benefit from hooks on the back of the door to hang towels to make better use of the space. There was also no bin in the bathroom but these are tiny things. It was perfect for the event and great value. Definitely recommended!
