Nice Hotel in the centre of the town/village in quite location if you are a the back of the hotel. Nice friendly staff. The hotel is in need of major updating its a bit old fashioned. Good food diner and breakfast.

This was an interesting place. Music playing ranged from Sinatra to rap. The staff was pleasant. Food was expensive, edible and plentiful. We got Shrimp cocktail ham, turkey stuffing and potatoes and Roast beef.
