The size of the bedroom was definitely above average and spotless. Dining room and lounge areas were very appealing. Been in others of same stars which were not as nice

We had a lovely relaxing stay with top quality food. Couldn't fault it. What I enjoyed the most was the fact it was cold outside and the lovely fire was roaring away whilst we chilled in the bar area on arrival and then when we retired from our evening meal for a night cap!.
