We booked last minute and had a limited choice as a result.We would never choose to stay at this place again and would not recommend it to anyone. Food quality poor, surroundings frankly depressing. We are staggered by the good reviews, haven't people stayed anywhere better than this? Quirky?... it certainly is, and poor value for money. Avoid unless you have no choice.
