Shaky start but a Perfect ending by the Garden
Room was not ready on arrival and I had to come back 2 hours later as I arrived in morning after a 2.5 hour travel by car and no toilet facility to use when I told them . However, I drove around city to a nearby restaurant for lunch with toilet and the rest of my stay was fine. I was offered a bigger room away from noisy neighbours with a garden view for a small sum extra when I explained that I had an awful sleep.A spacious room with cooking facilities and quiet serene atmosphere. Spotlessly clean with friendly staff.
