Great few days. Recommended
Situated right in town. 2 minutes walk to lake. Great breakfast, good veggie option. Clean and tidy. Only downer for us was the bed too small and soft for us. Also bedroom floor slanted so that hubby kept rolling into the middle of the bed. Otherw9could not fault it. Even the weather was good to us.

Fair 4.0
Won't be back.
Supposed to be dog friendly,. Had to eat separately at breakfast, a first, as dog not allowed at breakfast. Welcome notes in room not welcoming for dog owners. Walk out directly into a busy road dangerous for dogs especially. Room very tired and very small, half toilet roll, one tissue in box, hot with no fan, tiny bathroom. Stale biscuits and sherry in lounge. Expensive at £90.

Very Good 8.0
Pretty close to perfect.
Excellent location, great breakfast choice, very quiet. Room 8 a bit small and was quite warm ~ very hot day ~ mentioned this online & very soon after we were supplied with a fan! Staff we saw were very friendly and attentive. Private parking too. Very good, will recommend.
