Location was excellent, so easy to get to. Breakfast was pretty much all you could want.
Wifi was only at the bar and really couldn't connect well.
Heat automatically turned off overnight.
The owners, William and Bill are perfect hosts - friendly, hospitable and with a great sense of humour! Our room and en suite were of a high standard and were exceptionally warm and comfortable.
No complaints at all.
