Pleasant room with carefully thought out amenities. A personally served cup of coffee and a home made cake on arrival for a weary traveller was a very welcoming touch. Breakfast was excellent and the home made marmalade just finished off a lovely meal

From the greeting to leaving couldn't have asked for better service. Angie is a great host and looked after us above and beyond. The room we had was upgraded free of charge and all the things you would want were available. Well definitely visit again.
