                                  The fact that there is a restaurant and bar on the premises enables you to relax after a long journey. Friendly staff and nice clean rooms.

                                  The tranquil environment was very relaxing after a long day on the road. The unit was clean and well equipped.

                                  Rooms were lovely and very comfortable (with extra blankets and an electric blanket). Was lovely to have a kettle and small bar fridge in the room. (Please add one or 2 extra hooks in the bathroom to hang towels, dressing gowns etc. while you shower) A truly lovely place to stay. The dinner was fantastic and served by lovely, friendly staff! Thanks for a wonderful stay over.

                                  Good food, great view, reasonable pricing, warm bed, clean room.Only downside was the staff, either due to being shorthanded or not interested in the clients. E.g. dinner, just came for the order, no idea that the menu was on the wall, did not as about desert until I was the last person in the room and then the coffee machine was not plugged in. Also disappeared for 20 minutes at a time. Also put a cover on that eyesore of a pump by the river's edge.
