Our stay was a bit unusual as the Pub was closed but they honoured our accommodation booking. Very good room with good furniture and a high standard of cleanliness.

The room accommodation was excellent and had everything that we could want for our short stay. Refreshments were provided which was a very nice touch and the Manager who we spoke to was extremely helpful. Would definitely stay again at the property.
