Headland View
Great location, however, on arrival we were told there was no Breakfast ( maybe should have let us know before we booked) also no on site parking, and we were told that when we require fresh towels leave the used ones in the shower compartment, we did this but towels were not changed which was disappointing! Would we stay again ? Sadly not
