    The new owners are very friendly and are working hard to make changes from the previous management. The family room we stayed in was very clean and suited us as a family of 4 perfectly. The breakfast choice was fantatsic and tasted superb. The children loved the swimming pool which will be even better once heated, which they are sorting soon. We had a peaceful 2 night stay.
