Comfortable stay, will be back
Comfortable for all 4 of us in garden room, the small deck an added bonus to sit in the evening. Room a bit dated and wifi patchy. Service v.good inside bar for dinner, outside for drinks and table service for breakfast. All worked well within the coronavirus restrictions. Limited outside dining options nearby with places closing early
