Great accomodation would recommend. Only issue which I would consider significant is that cigarette smoke would fill the room from people smoking outside adjoining rooms under the awning. To fix the issue smoking needs to be banned near the rooms.

It was a lovely room, mostly quiet, very clean. Could update ironing board with some padding and have cheaper options on the menu.

Quiet enough, but put all guests in one corner of the building. I thought it strange give we’re all told to socially distance. I guess it was for ease of cleaning. It didn’t appear the complimentary breakfast was operating on the Monday.

Thank you for staying with us & for your feedback. We're pleased you had a nice stay. Our friendly reception staff offered to get you anything from the buffet for breakfast as it was operational when you enquired. We're sorry you were not previously aware of this. Travel safe.
