stay here, it won't disappoint!
Clean and newly decorated dining room with truly excellent cuisine> What really makes this hotel stand out is the incredibly helpful and friendly staff, over and above duty! Would recommend.
just a few km off the main roads, handy to have a sat nav to find it and look at google street view before you go. Gave 8/10 for hygiene cos there was dust on the bed head but everything else was clean. Can't think of any other minus points at all>
