The room was warm. The bed was comfortable. The restaurant was not open. There was no knives, forks or spoons to even butter bread. Very few shops were open in town toaster. The shower- head was loose.... The staff were amenable on arrival and departure.

The location and view were superb and the staff were wonderful. The room itself and the property were pretty ordinary, but a great place to stop overnight.

Photos onthe website are misleading. Rooms were cold, poor heating. Over priced for age of property.

This property was very disappointing, arriving in the winter the room was cold the heater had not been turned on even though we pre-booked. The toilet was dirty with toilet paper in it and the teaspoons were dirty. I found the receptionist a bit rude. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

It is typical that guests leaving negative reviews do not have the courage to own their criticisim. There were probably reasons your heater wasn't turned on - like early arrival. We usually have the heaters turned on at 2pm. I apologise for the teaspoons and some toilet paper in the loo, but I find you a bit rude for not leaving your name.
