Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Perfect little weekend stay
Enjoyed our stay. Room was very cute and had everything you would need. Little noise as it was in the main road. There was a grid right outside our room that conked with every car but didn't keep us awake. Very comfortable and clean. Staff were very friendly.
