4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
lovely big room
In time of COVID-19 it’s different to manage a regular stay. It was an easy check in, our key was in an envelope waiting for us and we were directed to our room. The room was lovely and had everything we needed. Breakfast was delivered and left of a tray outside our room daily at 8am. The house is located about a 10 minute walk from the centre of town and parking was easy along the road, we didn’t struggle to park the whole of our 4 days. Would recommend
