I knew I was booked into a three star hotel and was prepared to rough it! I was not prepared for room 16, measuring approx. 10 x 10 ft and sold as double room. Only one sleeper gets a bedside table, the room is also above a busy road, you hear every car, lorry and tractor in detail. The room...

Visited this hotel with a Groupon deal for 2 nights b&b. Hotel was in a beautiful location, the outside probarly being the most impressive. Not ideal if you dont have a car as getting about is a nightmare. Food was really nice, plenty of options at breakfast. Feeding the Ducks outside is a must! Could not fault this hotel.
