Good points
An outstanding place to stay, in fact we have just booked to go back for our third time in three weeks time! Fabulous breakfast - sets you up for the whole day! Beautiful spotlessly clean rooms, everything you can possibly think of has been catered for. Lovely guest lounge with abundance of DVD's etc. so you can relax after a long day touring. Very knowledgeable, thoughtful, helpful, accommodation and friendly hosts. You truly could not ask for a better place to stay.

Bad points
cannot think of a single one, everything surpasses all expectations!
