Great views and really enjoyed the few days we spend there. All nice and clean and friendly staff. Only problem experienced and disappointment is that when I booked online, it gave me a choice of extras I would like. I selected a bottle of sparkling wine and a picnic basket for our arrival.

It is also well located for self catering. security is good with off road car parking. Wifi not good in your room and varies in speed.... More
