The whole space is fresh and modern. We had a private twin room, which was huge, and the bathroom had the most amazing hot shower with great water pressure! The communal areas are comfortable and clean, and there’s a great outdoor space! The people working here are friendly and proficient. Only downside for us is that they don’t cater for vegans. We unexpectedly had breakfast included in our room rate, which was great, but could only get the fruit and coffee - part of one of the three breakfasts on offer. More labelled, vegan-friendly items would be wonderful!
