Basic but warm rooms with a lovely lounge with a large fireplace. Breakfast was great, and our trip to and from the 42 Traverse was a very pleasant. It is only a short walk to a range of bars and restaurants and has lovely views from the end of the driveway.
There were three of us lads sharing a room and apparently the couch in the lounge is comfortable to sleep on if you are the one snoring all night!
