Great location,staff try hard but just a bit tired
Great breakfast and great location. Mostly the service was very good. The rooms just look a little tired. Odd thinks were not working. TV not working in one room and shower door not working in other room. Staff generally very helpful. Being near a river, midges in numbers would be in room if light on and window open.
