We really enjoyed our overnight stay. I think the highlight was the"feast". The food was out of this world. Every taste was catered for. Sadly it is closing( due to the virus) Hopefully it is only temporary.

Very clean and surprisingly spacious. Quiet. TV streaming (Netflix) / wireless didn't work for us due to slow speed but we didn't need them for a one nighter

Better than expected. With the low price and age of the property, I didn't have high hopes... I was wrong. Older, but well maintained, clean and spacious.
