Very much liked the location, the spacious feel of the place & the friendly staff. Nothing much to dislike, although I meant to mention on checking out that I think there is a water leak in room 343 around the toilet area.

This a really lovely hotel in a great location. I had a very pleasant stay. It was great value for money. I enjoyed my close encounters with horses and deer on the drive to the hotel. Make sure you drive carefully, the speed humps are there for a reason. A very enjoyable but brief stay and I hope ...

Loved the location, the size of the property and the amenities in the apartment. Beds were nice and comfy. The bathrooms, especially the toilets could have been cleaner, they were black under the rims
