5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great location for resturaunts and makes for easy pick-up for activities. Staff were very friendly and helped me book activities with local companies. Good breakfast options available including oat milk and fruit if you want to avoid animal products. Room was quirky and clean, with plenty of space if you have lots of luggage.
