Nicely appointed room with usual amenities for tea/coffee making. Small, well stocked guest kitchen at the end of the hall to help yourself. Great restaurant, friendly staff and very nice location. A bit noisy until the patrons went home but this was at a reasonable hour so not a big problem.

We stayed one night and can't fault it. The staff were excellent and very genuine. We enjoyed a good meal in the restaurant. The room had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The location is lovely.

Such a great place. Beds comfy, facilities clean, shower great pressure. Fruit trees outside with a note to help yourself if the fruit is ready to eat. Full of character too. Will stay again. Great value for money.
