“Weekend break”

What a thoroughly enjoyable break this was! We booked via wowcher, 2 couples at £99 per couple for 2 nights inclusive of breakfast. The rooms were lovely and clean with a nice view and had all you could ask for. If giving suggestions I would simply suggest a coat hook in the room but besides that we were all thrilled as the beds were very comfy and cosy. An adsed bonus was the tranquillity with such a great night’s sleep both nights too. I cannot praise the staff enough either; very warm and friendly and had a joke with us too! Happy to assist whenever with taxis and suggestions and the breakfasts were very good indeed – in all honesty we would have happily paid a lot more as the whole package and location were just what we were after. We would highly recommend a visit to this lovely place and look forward to a return visit.
