5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Excellent Covid-secure stay
Quiet, comfy room for two nights, with excellent dinner and breakfast. The proprietor and staff have worked hard to create a safe and enjoyable environment during the current covid restrictions. Everything is cleaned, one-way system, sanitisers, excellent table spacing and no congestion areas. We felt very safe. The proprietors will turn away groups who they don't feel sure are within the rules and are committed to safety.
