When you stay here you have to keep in mind that the main thing you're paying for is the fantastic location. Our room (no.3) was basic and clean(ish) - I did find a lot of stray hairs in the shower and on the toilet. The bathroom in general was not of a good standard in our opinion. But my main issue was that it was roasting even though the radiator wasn't on and our window only opened a crack so I slept badly for the 2 nights we were there.
The staff were all lovely, one lady really went out of her way to get me a hairdryer as I was expecting there to be one (take note).
My other vice was the parking. The entrance to the site was so narrow and difficult to approach from the busy main road that I ended up scraping all the side of my car on some scaffolding. I drive a ford focus, they're not that wide, so I can't see any bigger cars being able to get in easily unless the drivers are super confident.
All in all, I'm sorry to say we wouldn't return to stay the night and I wouldn't recommend the accommodation to anyone, but we would definately come back to drink and enjoy the atmosphere in the bar.
