We stayed in the gold standard double room which is located on the ground floor in the main house. The room had a large en-suite bathroom but no cooking facilities or a fridge as these were located in a communal kitchen. The room was advertised as having a balcony which consisted of a table and couple of chairs located on what turned out to be a walkway from the car park to other rooms and the pool area. The spring loaded stopper in the bathroom sink didn't work so it was not possible to retain water in the sink to wash, when this was mentioned to the owner she replied that another guest had mentioned it - but they had done nothing to repair or replace it. The room itself was clean and comfortable but the kitchen drawers needed lining paper. The property has the advantage of being located close to the town centre however the disadvantage was that loud music was played until 12.30 on the Saturday night we stayed and this was followed by raucous banter for some time after that. My overall impression was disappointing and I would recommend the self contained studio apartments across the courtyard and I would suggest finding alternative accommodation if staying at a weekend.
Ate at the Bridgehouse restaurant.
