Enjoyed the stay- the location was ideal. We arrived late at night and breakfast the next morning was a little unsteady- do we sit, where do we sit, who do we speak to, but all fine once we had met Sue the next day. Loved the room and comfort, the capsule coffee maker was not working but we were fine with the kettle and sachets. I would recommend and hope to be back.
