We only stayed one night but the accommodation was faultless. Very clean, comfortable bed and good facilities in the room. The property was easy to find and close to the main road. Highly recommended.

Excellent service, quiet, very clean and well-appointed rooms. Only minutes from the shops and sights. Off street parking and quiet environment. The staff really showed their obliging Southern hospitality when we needed anything. We had our elderly disabled mum with us and nothing was too much bother to make her stay as comfortable as possible. A big thank you to...

The manager found it was my room that triggered the alarm. So she started to suspect us in an unpleasant way. Who would cook at 2am? Was there any instruction saying the...

So sorry for your experience but alarms are necessary, when the heater is at max all night and the temperature in the room goes above 60c which triggers our heat sensors (which are there as protection) the alarm goes as this may be a fire as would our fire alarms. We have two alarms in the rooms 1. heat sensor...

Lovely quiet room with plenty of light. Well appointed and very clean. Bathroom is tastefully decorated. Heater gauge was difficult to set right - only three markings that are spaced at large intervals. Location is very central. Positioned opposite the fire station.
