Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Really nice room. Great bed. Breakfast was good. It was a hot day, so the bottled water was warm to say the least, as there was no fridge. The kit kat biscuit was also just a melted mess. A small fridge would have made all the difference. All the staff were pleasant and helpful.

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Entrance to carpark tiny, dark and NOT VERY CLEAR. I had nowhere to park all weekend, as the gates shut at 10pm and I'm a night owl. Carpark only consists of a tiny space anyway... 5 cars maybe... A bit misleading. When i was in the room, the tv signal kept interferring with the picture, so when i logged into the wifi to watch tv on my phone instead... I soon found out the wifi was crap too. I used all my data. However bed was LOVELY. Snugg little room and breakfast nice. Staff super friendly when needed. The wooden keying must come makestoo much noise,getting in...
