    The staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was good. The position was excellent for my wedding venue pick up point.

    The single bed was wooden and very noisy. It kept me awake with its squeeks!!

    Very pleasant people. Comfortable room and modern bathroom. Lively pub downstairs with tasty food. Breakfast, although continental, more than adequate. No problem with parking.

    On a main road so sometimes traffic a bit noisy.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms very clean and pleasant.
