Everything was great,clean and tidy. Breakfast was excellent and a good serving. Bathroom was in a older style but if thats going to be your only problem perhaps you should stay elsewhere. We enjoyed our stay and will be back. Andy and Juanita

Great place to stay. Room was huge and the bathroom even bigger. Everything we needed was supplied and the room we had was at the back of the hotel and was quiet. The only problem we had was trying to find the sign as it was covered by the trees out the front
