Hi thank you for your kind review. We have 2 levels of accommodation, to cater for most peoples needs. Your party had both, a single and a twin room. Our Twin or Double rooms have full Ensuite shower and toilet for within each room As stated our singles use 2 shower rooms between 5 single rooms. as both rooms are available at simular money per person we believe we offer some of the best value accomadation at very affordable rates without compramising quality of the offer of a complementary breakfast when others charge unto £10 extra just for a basic breakfast. Look forward to meeting you again soon.
