My partner and I stayed 2 nights and were greeted by one of the owners, Fiona who was extremely pleasant, warm and informative. We found the place clean, tastefully decorated with quality fittings. Food was excellent. Would definitely recommend it to a friend and would have second thoughts about returning.
