    What a find!

    What a find! I can’t believe how many times we’ve driven past this place and never gone in! Lovely room, spacious and clean. Staff are very friendly. The food was gorgeous. Huge portions of proper home cooked food. All 6 of us chose a different evening meal and all were spot in. The breakfast in the morning was cooked to order and again all were beautiful. We look forward to returning in August.

    All I would say, it is very average and priced too high. Bathroom need some repairs done and it could do with some sort of shelving for your toilet bags. Although there is a hairdryer, but plugs are "hidden" or on the bedside, so you can not stand/sit in front of a mirror. The food was good, but the plates overfilled. Breakfast was fine although it could have done with some fresh, instead of tinned fruits. We thought the overall is ok, but the price too high for what you are getting.
