Very professional staff and friendly greeting. Next to very well stocked bottle shop and the pub has a very good restaurant. Nice and clean with comfortable furnishings. Limited amenities, but suited our one night stopover. Would stay again.

Clean and comfortable, close to the pub, while being far enough away for a quiet night.

We found that the bathroom needed better cleaning, we found a hair stuck on the wall, plus it needed a better overall cleaning. No microwave if needed. I think a 3 star rating would be closer to the mark. The gentleman at the bar who gave the keys was very helpful and friendly.

Thank you for talking the time to send feedback. Warm regards,
