My friend and I were greeted by a very nice, friendly and helpful lady. We stayed for 2 nights in a basically decorated and clean room and slept very well! The breakfast was fab As were the staff and every thing was great value for money!!

Yes every thing was dated and old in this old characteristic building!! Needs a bit of upgrading but it was great value for money and the beds were clean!! All we wanted was somewhere to rest our heads and the good breakfast and all fab staff was a bonus! Thank you!!!
