    Although we only stayed one night we new straight away that it was a well run and cared for hotel. The rooms were immaculate and the full English breakfast was excellent. A lot of care obviously goes into this hotel by the owners.

    We enjoyed our short break here. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was delicious and the lounge area pleasant for having a cup of tea in the afternoon and though there is no bar there are plenty of off licences in the area
