The room was very clean and the bathroom was spotless. The view from the window was onto a water tank and we couldn’t open the blind or the window itself to get any fresh air or sunlight.

Stayed as we had our Christmas party here. The rooms are accessed via an outside stairway and I did wonder if I’d made a mistake in booking here. BUT... the room was amazing, really big with lots of nice touches like a rA real surprise and excellent value. . . Whilst this isn’t central, it is only a short walk to the main town centre.
