Jon Cable

"The hotel was a in a bit of a time warp, but thereby went its charm. The staff were really friendly, the food very good and the range of facilities was also fine."

Mr. Richard Adams (23/01/2020)
"Although food was very much on the school canteen level and did not fit with the level of accommodation. "
