of our customers rated this property good or excellent.

Mrs Barkes, 30 June 2015

We loved this hotel but the plumbing could do with modernising! However, it was the old feel, with very long serving staff and a really caring attitude that we liked best. The view and situation were excellent.

Mrs Moat, 19 June 2015

Reception staff were excellent and the hotel was spotlessly clean with lovely big white towels that were changed every day
