Eight Bells always grants us a true breakaway from our daily life. The facilities are wonderful and it is always very relaxing to visit. Our room was in a perfect location and was always well serviced and cleaned. The staff are like old family or friends. Andrew who is medically retired, made a special effort to come and say hello to us during our stay=---this is the nature of the staff at Eight Bells.

Food portions are very small, expensive and not up to standard. We had a mouse in our room 2 nights in a row which meant we didn't sleep very well. The facilities and location are lovely, it just needs to go back up to the standard we have experienced there before.

Hi Mrs Farrell - thank you for your visit and review ! I am sorry to hear that your most recent experience was not what you expected and sincerely hope there will be another opportunity for us to change that perception. I did offer to move you to another room when you told me about the little mouse that somehow got into your room but you said it is fine.
Keep Well and Kind Regards

We had breakfast under the trees on eight bells patio, with birds singing all around us ! The breakfast, was superbly done and the coffee was realy great! The premises, has the same feel as a farm, with lush vegitation! We went for a long stroll, on the winding gravel road, with wondefull mountain views! To top it all, we were accompanied by the Inn's border collie! They even have horses on there "farm" and they just love attention!
What a wonderfull experiance!
