Nice quiet location with good parking
Lovely small quiet location with big secluded carpark. Room was very pretty but door frame did break and door closer fell off while we were there! In need of some TLC. Lovely staff member available on the phone. Do not pay extra for breakfast, I ended up with a bowl of rice Crispies and some dry toast. They may have been short staffed. Great location for a stop off and good access to town.
