    The third time I had booked here. Once again Ian was amazing. I arrived to check in only to find the room I booked had been engulfed by a swarm of bees and they could no longer accommodate me. Without hesitation Ian booked me into what turned out to be quite a posh place down the road. It was twice the price but Ian paid the difference. Amazing service as always. I can't recommend this place enough.

    We had a really lovely stay. Friendly staff and great location, only a short walk to the town centre. The views in the morning are beautiful too!
