Guest Comments

The room was lovely, the bed big, the sheets crisp, breakfast good - all round fantastic. It would have scored a 10/10 if the wifi was working - I reported this problem twice in the two days, but he general blank stares from the staff on this specific matter gave one the feeling of being fobbed off - promises to "reset" and to "notify" the service provider did not improve things at all.

Its perfect place to be. I'll definitely come back.
The place is Ok. No need for any improvement. I slept like a queen


Very comfortable and pleasant stay. Rooms are spacious and well serviced on a daily basis

Lovely well appointed accommodation with lots of attention to detail. Can highly recommend and will definitely stay there again.


What a lovely place to stay! Absolutely charming building, lovely facilities however I am a bath person rather than a shower person! Will definitely stay there again!
