    Great room, good price, nice and clean. The food at the restaurant is every bit as good as we remember, although would've liked the Sole fillet to have been available. Would definitely recommend others to stay here.

    Room a bit tired, but had everything we needed in it. Was pleasantly surprised to find cutlery and crockery in the room, so could easily have done our own breakfasts. The restaurant was excellent and the staff very friendly.
