We stayed in a private ensuite room, which was enormous. Lovely bathroom and the fridge was a nice touch. The garden and kitchen were great too and it's very conveniently located for town. Nicer than many motels we stayed in for twice the price! The staff were incredibly friendly, beyond helpful and really couldn't do enough. Unfortunately we had a woman in the room next door who enjoyed wearing heels and her tramping up and down the walkway quite late made sleep difficult.
