Once through the slightly gloomy and shrine-like entrance (haven't they heard about first impressions?) the place opens up into a lawned garden surrounded by rooms, with a pool at the end. Our room, No.51, was also a bit of a surprise: up some external steel steps to a small terrace with a table and two chairs, then into a gable end of the building where the small space had been converted on two levels. Downstairs was a seating area, wardrobe, basin and walk-in shower with a separate loo. Up some steep wooden steps was the large bedroom area with a huge and comfortable double bed plus a single, and the wall-mounted flat screen TV. I liked the layout, my wife was less enthusiastic. Room 51 definitely not for mobility-impaired!
