Excellent place to stay with professional staff. Lovely 2 room apartment for our family of 2 adults and 3 kids. Food was brilliant too. The best scrambled eggs and porridge that we have ever had. It was also the best shower that I have ever had in a hotel and my family thought it was hilarious that I kept saying so. I have travelled all over Europe, Asia and the US so they thought I was kidding but I meant it.

Looks good and clean. It has a bar and restaurant on site. Unfortunately it was very noisey at night. Drunks spill out into the carpark after drinking/eating at restaurant or bar. We were woken up at midnight with yelling and laughing from drunks in the carpark. Smokers hang around the front of their rooms as well, may aswell smoke in the rooms, be less people to annoy.

Easy checkin and really comfortable room. It was a great spot to spend the night but as we had a two bedroom with kitchen, we could easily be happy for a few days.
