10/10 Exceptional

Steve and Jackie just made us so welcome. It was like a home away from home. Our room was nice and warm, though not very big, it met all our needs. The bed was very comfortable, and we had good night sleep. The only negative about this property is parking. There are only 6 spaces and it is difficult to manoeuvre a bigger vehicle !.
