The room is old and not updated but has a nice bathroom. They have a very good breakfast. The carpet in our room really needs to be replaced.

Great welcome to a quaint inn
A lovely quaint inn with lots of character. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and although in line with the location parking was not on site it was fairly easy to offload our bags then fine a nearby car park. Although they were very busy they made us feel at home and fitted us in for dinner which was very nice with a good wine list.
John, gb1 night trip

The first impression of our room wasn't great, a set of mirrored drawers which were badly cracked and the room wasn't as clean as I would have liked. The other issue was the staff member who didn't make us feel at all welcome and there was not even a thank you when we left or any did you have a nice stay? Sound proofing is the other big downside, I didn't particularly want to hear someone snoring or even making love! It was so clear that you felt that you were in the same room! I would have mentioned some of these things when we checked out but I was simply never asked. The one night away that me and my husband will probably have this year with no kids and disappointing.
