We travelled by train, so the fact that the bus stop to a lot of different locations was two minutes round the corner really helped. Also convenient for the pubs... More

Breakfast was lovely, picked what you wanted the night before and was ready within 5 minutes of sitting down the next morning. Rob was very friendly and informative and must say a very good driver as I had to... More
