Great hotel, the room was lovely and the staff couldn’t have been friendlier. The heating was left on in our room on a really hot day which was the only negative. Would definitely stay again if we are in the area.

The property does not look like much from the outside but does have some amazing views looking over the valley to the front of the property. Whe we arrived we were early so said hello and the receptionist pointed us on the direction to find somewhere for lunch locally. About a 20 Minute walk away. We were given room 18 in the property which had a front facing window. The food was like a good pub dinner and was well presented with attentive staff. A positive experience and somewhere we will come back to when in the area
