The dining and kitchen areas were adequate. For the I,bed of people USO them, though, bathroom facilities were small and not as clean as they could be. We arrived late to find that we had been given one room to share instead of the two that we had booked some months before hand. Our room was off the kitchen area and obviously was a garage adjoining the main house at some stage. The room smelt of mould and there was mould on the ceiling. We had no choice but to stay as we arrived late in mid- summer and accommodation in the town was fully booked.
On a positive note, though, our money was refunded when we complained about the room. Hopefully they have rectified the mould situation by now.
