I just wanted to say how lovely Frankie has been. She’s gone above and beyond to welcome us and she’s been a gem. Left a lovely impression. And we’ve got some lovely photos that she’s taken! Thank you again Frankie.

First time here, and hopefully not the last. A warm welcome on a wet day, luggage stored while we went Christmas shopping. The bedroom all ready on our return, very good size with super comfy bed. All amenities slippers,robes and extra pillows as requested. The only thing I needed was a magnifying mirror in the bathroom. Dinner was excellent we had a perfect steak and wonderful pudding. The staff were all very helpful especially Hannah in reception. Thank you.
