My role currently requires a bit more travelling around and to be frank all you want when you get accommodation is not the bells and whistles but rather the basics done right. What I got was that in spades, probably my best nights sleep away from home in a surprisingly comfortable bed with great pillows, place was super tidy, owner was lovely, area was tidy and it made a night away from home that much more enjoyable! Well done team for nailing the basics and some.
