Best hotel of the trip. Turned up late just before the restaurant was about to close and they offered to keep it open while we had a shower and got cleaned up. The food was excellent. Only slight downside was I struggled to keep the shower at a constant temperature but that might have been me. Would recommend.

Great welcome, excellent food & drink selection and the MOST comfortable room... although I could have slept hanging over a washing line, after 12 hours in the saddle, the bed was among the most comfortable I have ever slept in!!
