Easy parking. Friendly welcome. Clean. Large room, ensuite and bed. Tea bags and instant coffee making facilitates. Not many tea bags! Only clear plastic cups for water! Most places would provide glass. No tissues or even toilet brush. Not much in way of soaps etc Wifi not very reliable. Breakfast included. Very good. Would rate no more than 4 stars.

Great location but average service and cleanliness

Our staff experience was very disappointing. Check in and check out were both very slow processes, having to wait a long time for staff to arrive and process our details and then they couldn't produce a receipt for our stay. Continental breakfast was great but cooked breakfast was limited and disappointing.

Just perfect

Pros: Location, space, wifi and clean
Location: Perfect in centre of village with big grocery store underneath.
Great location, unbelievably clean and plenty of space in the family room. Not many hotels accept 5 people in a room but this place did and room was just perfect. Staff were great and cooked breakfast was awesome, made our stay perfect.
