I liked the vibrancy of the pub and the central location to eateries, a supermarket and places to visit. It would have been better to know there was no parking before hiring a car because that was extra expense in parking. I didn’t see that made known when I booked online. More attention towards health and safety in the men’s bathroom where the shower is. My partner injured himself substantially when exiting the shower and slipping on the wet floor where there was no floor mat to prevent this. While showering, the water found a way under the shower curtain which then became a safety hazard. My partner is still on painkillers. Three staff were informed of this accident. They lacked a professional approach to this incident and no incident report or the like was ever documented. Quite poor we thought.
