    This property is in sight of a beautiful Church which was spectacular at night. The room was lovely but the shower ran cold when we arrived late in the evening which was very disappointing, but the owner did provide a discount. The breakfast rates were confusing as they were one price for residents £15pp and different prices for non residents which again I wasn’t very pleased with. I think this hotel could do better on guest hospitality and pricing.
