4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
long weekend stay.
Very comfortable bed, clean room and en suite. Had room with fabulous view. Can get a bit of road noise with window open but to be expected as right on the front. Very convenient for all amenities. Although not a problem for us, there is no lift but quite a few steps which should be a little more clear in the overview as could affect some people. Overall a good experience and would stay again.
