Didn’t get more than 30mins before they kicked me out for having my dog in my car, I had just organised for her to stay somewhere else but nope, at least I got a refund but they don’t consider that you are trying to follow their rules

Normally this is quite a good place to stay, but in this instance I was questioning my return. Not the usual high quality I am used too.

Economical, very well presented, the restaurant catered very thoroughly for special dietary requirements (coeliac disease), including separate toaster. Excellent.
