Nicely-modernised old hotelLocated on one of the town's main streets and with a supermarket car park at the back, I worried it might be noisy but it wasn't. This is a great base for exploring this beautiful area.

Cutest InnThe Inn was great and so easy to check in. Staff was so friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. Only caveat was my husband hit his head 3 times going into the bathroom because the entrance is really low. He is 5'10" so not crazy tall, but a nice cushion up there would be appreciated.
