When we arrived about 11.30am (booking in from 14.00) a gentleman was just parking his car and spoke to us almost immediately, he said come in your room is... More

Having read the reviews before we arrived i was a little aprehensive, but any doubts were soon laid to rest. On arrival we were met with a friendly greeting and swiftly allocated our room which was quite basic but clean and more than served our needs. The beds were quite comfortable and we always had hot water, clean towels, toiletries... More
