For the price it was acceptable,with no TV though we opted to stay out for the evening also the mattress was very dipped on one side so one of us had to lay at an angle to avoid being squashed in the middle.
Mr Stephen B

Miss Caroline M

Mr Nigel H

More than delighted with the accommodation.First time we have done it.Would definately do it again and would recommend it to others
Mrs Carol G

Very good value, only issue is that the bed was not the comfiest, but I understand that is probably unavoidable. Would use again.
Mr Matthew P

Was a real pleasure to stay there even if it was only for one night. Excellent room and location.
