Steve and Karen were very welcoming and couldn't have done more to make our holiday any better. The room was spacious and the bed very comfortable.The breakfast was well cooked and Steve was the perfect waiter. Steve's recommendations on places of interest and where to eat were much appreciated and proved to be good.
