    I only stayed one night and had to leave early to catch the flight from Stanstead, so I missed the breakfast unfortunately. The room was comfortable enough although a bit aged. I enjoyed looking over the gravel courtyard, had a nice feeling to it of...More

    Quaint and welcoming, a little 'lived in' but presentable. It has a good 'feeling' and definitely benefits from being privately owned. Check-in was friendly and efficient, staff went out of their way to arrange a taxi in the evening for us and this was no...More
