    “Absolutely fantastic”

    I had an absolutely wonderful time. Fiona and Graham were extremely welcoming and friendly. They went above and beyond to help especially as I was travelling alone with a baby.

    The room was to a very high standard finish and was super clean. The bed was so comfy!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review, we really appreciate it and look forward to seeing you both again! Fiona
