    Thank you Cliff and Debs for your review, we are pleased that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in room 25 and we do hope that you will visit again soon.

    Disinterested and antagonistic barmaid. Not made to feel welcome at all. This is not called the hospitality industry for nothing. Been coming here for 30 years and sad to see the place has gone to the dogs. Will not be returning.

    Sorry, also no picture of the rooms but you certainly can eat in the bar and they will also book a table there for you and you can have your dog with you. Like the bar area better than the restaurant.
