Just what we were thinking for - clean, comfy, and good with our baby (they gave us a travel cot). We all slept well! And breakfast was perfect.

Unremarkable stay... The room (Chimneys) needs much TLC - it's plain, dull, and a bit tatty with a large space on the wall with large holes where a mirror used to be? The lighting in the bathroom is awful! The complimentary drink was missing though reluctantly later supplied. Breakfast was OK though very limited - and bread for toast was plain sliced stuff. Difficult in Covid for sure, so perhaps not a good time to be away or review. Staff (when visible) were helpful.
