Ideally located for the main A75 road and close to two great restaurants in Little Italy and Casa Mia. The decor added character and warmth to the building. The breakfast was plentiful...

The owners need to address this as the standard is pulled down badly by these things. Staff were very helpful and friendly,, the manager was very friendly, as was the young...
