Good value for money

A warm and friendly welcome from the young man behind the bar, we were in room 6 which overlooked the car park and garden but still very quiet. One small complaint would be that the mattress was very soft and offered little support making for an uncomfortable nights sleep. The bar/restaurant had a lovely atmosphere with a good menu. Food was nicely cooked but overpriced for where we are used to. Breakfast was very good, usual buffet style and the full English arrived quickly and freshly cooked so nice and hot. The morning waitress was very friendly and accommodating to those with special requests. Overall very good value for money.
