Lovely staff and good food. The property was a little dated but the beds were excellent. We weren't there long so it was great for what we needed.

Amazing stay.
We had an amazing stay here, sad we only stayed one night! Jess was incredible, very welcoming! Dinner and breakfast served as extra, but well worth the money! Will definitely come back here for longer next time!
