I stayed here for three nights whilst I visited family and found it delightful. The decor was appealing and of a high standard. Everything was thoroughly clean. The breakfasts were superb - everything was fresh, and the fish dishes were a lovely change from boring old bacon and eggs. I quite enjoyed the communal eating, it was a bit like being on a cruise. The resident dogs were well behaved and added a homely atmosphere. The host appeared a little eccentric, but it just added to the whole experience of the stay. I will certainly stay there again!
