It made it...

Stayed 2nts over Easter. Emma very informative and helpful. Convenient location for town centre. Good, tasty breakfast and spotlessly clean. Room a bit on small side but had everything we needed. DOG FRIENDLY too. So even your pooch can stay which is a big thumbs up from us!

Wonderful cooked breakfast - perfect porridge, delicious bacon, eggs and potato scones. Lots of herbal teas. Excellent choice. Very warm and welcoming hosts. Rooms were warm. Beds were OK. Decor a little dated. Central location. Good advice on places to eat. A really nice vibe. Fantastic value for money.
