    Location. Off-street parking. Bus stop opposite

    Television lead needs attention. Wi-Fi coverage was poor. We found the demeanor of the staff and owner lacked warmth and was somewhat dismissive.

    The bed was sizable and comfortable. The room was cozy.

    The toilet did not flush well and the shower pressure was very low. Also, must be located just up the street from an ambulance base - many ambulances raced by with siren much of the day.

    Staff really friendly and welcoming. Clean and tidy. Free parking. Good location and really good food at the local pub - The Bell

    We were in Room #7 on the top floor, unfortunately the WiFi didn’t work at this upper level. It did work well at lower levels of the property. The electric shower on the top floor in the shared bath was really inadequate suffering from scalding to freezing temperatures and lack of pressure.

    Close to town. Bus stop across the street. Free car parking. Plenty of hot water and the room was warm.
