  • 8.0.Very good

    Overall good

    Good location if you have car and nice nature around. Friendly and helpful staff but no cleaning or changing of towels during our whole stay for 4 days. Really small room.

  • 6.0.Good

    Cheap as chips and quality to match

    Our staff member found the bathroom very small, and commented that if one of our bigger staff members had gone down, he would not have been able to get into the shower or sit on the toilet. Bed was uncomfortable and unit was rundown.

    Very friendly, exceptionally clean. Haven’t squeezed into a double bed for a couple of decades and didn’t enjoy trying! Wouldn’t have fitted a bigger bed in the room though 😜

    Top value for money. Compact modernised bedroom en-suite linked to a clean, well designed and presented kitchen, dining and lounge areas. Surrounded by a nicely presented garden area with seating.

  • 6.0.Good

    The room was very basic and tiny. There was only one chair. No mini bar or any coffee making things in the room. We were expected to go to a communal kitchen and prepare breakfast that we had to provide. There was no crockery or utensils provided. No TV in the room either. We will not go back there.
