Convenient, well presented and clean, however room restocking of toiletries/consumables and breakfast provisions was suboptimal.

Dear Tim, Thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback. Unfortauntely due to COVID-19 we have been unable to operate our breakfast service, and it has since been removed from all advertising. We have passed your feedback onto our housekeeping team also. We are pleased to hear that you still enjoyed your time with us, and we hope to be able to welcome you back again in the near future. Best wishes,
