A glance at our comments book will soon reassure you that you have arrived in a small haven. As far away from the ‘corporate’ style of hotel as possible but still having all the modern amenities you would expect.

‘Relaxing, resplendent, very cosmopolitan and chic, yet cosy and warm’, writes one guest.

‘Friendly and informal atmosphere, excellent food, wine and service; felt we were guests being made ‘at home’ in your home’, wrote another.

With comments like these, we feel we have achieved what we set out to do, to make our guests feel happy and relaxed. We look forward to welcoming you into our home and hope you have a wonderful stay.
