Small hotel which was working very hard under the current circumstances. Michael was an excellent host and ensured you had an enjoyable stay. We had dinner in the hotel one night and it was outstanding. They even went the extra mile to make a dessert that was meant to be for 2 just for myself. Nothing was too much trouble. Great location and hopefully we’ll be back.
