The staff and Manager in particular where warm and friendly. Food was generally good. I felt it odd to not be able to charge to the room but this was a minor thing. There was an issue with the plumbing which was not possible to resolve whilst we were there but the issue was well handled and did not cause too much of a problem. The room was well appointed and we had an enjoyable stay!

We received a warm welcome, the room was beautifully decorated and very clean. It is unfortunate that the current, nationwide situation meant that the latest order for dinner was 7.30pm - difficult for us and we noted, many others, however the staff were clearly making every attempt at lessening the impact of being so short staffed. Much business is being lost - we hope that this will improve in future for the sake of the hotel. We would definitely recommend and hope to make a return trip in the near future.

Great central position in village. Limited parking at the back of hotel. Room was lovely with good bathroom, although a stronger shower would be nice. Very quiet in the night.
