Very Good8.0
A place I would come back to. ..keeping in mind that it is Very get what you would expect. ..while not the Ritz-Carlton it is convenient and an easy walk to town. Breakfast cooked to order, but best was the service from Sarah who was taking care of the place while owners are on vacation. We stayed 4 nights.

Lovely anniversary stay
We stayed at The Lighthorseman for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary of getting engaged, as it was here that I proposed. We had a lovely 4 poster bed, that was extremely comfortable. The hotel is just a short walk from the city centre, either through the park on along the main road. The landlady was pleasant and showed us to our room, which was on the front of the property, facing the main road, but thankfully there wasn't much noise from the traffic, although the same couldn't be said about other guests! But it didn't spoil our stay too much. Overall a lovely stay, and will definitely make a return trip.

Comfortable stay
Bed's were amazing, but patron's in the bar area were extremely loud until closing. But that's expected at a pub.

No fuss. Nice place.
Nice place. No fuss. Staff were friendly and responded to anything we asked for. Maybe could have a spring clean and a lick of paint but other than that, a nice little find. I would definitely go back.
