Very good 8,0
I’ll be back
This was our fourth stay here and we will go back again. The only thing I could fault was that the condition of the fry pan and grill tray. The staff was great and very helpful. Can’t wait to go back.

Nice but very small hotel room.
The room was very small. Just about held the bed, fridge and work table in t. View wasn’t bad but the noise from the main road took away from it. Overall, clean but small for the price. Also when it got a bit windy you could hear it from the howling from under the door.
