4/5 Good

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
Rooms were lovely. Spacious and freshly decorated. However the day we visited the kitchen staff came down with Covid so there was no evening meal. Also it was VERY hot and the morning staff seemed to have had a poor night of sleep (as did we all). They did not know what was available in the kitchen (we asked for gluten free bread and oat milk and they had to check). Service was slow and we weren't offered jam with the toast
