Perfect place + location for a great value break
Excellent location for the town centre, great breakfast and friendly people. Above a pub so a little noisy but not so that it disturbed us. Definately would recommend

Pleasant stay
Very pleased with this accommodation,couldn’t fault any part of it, the owner was very pleasant and welcoming, and the room was small which I was expecting but it was very comfortable and suited my requirements. An excellent breakfast served in the morning. Thank you
