Lovely comfortable beds. Shower over bath a bit dangerous for older people. Enjoyed our stay. Great having an outside area to be able to use.

Nice views, rooms were clean. Hotel is in need of updating it’s a bit run down. Breakfast was ok, except on the first day they ran out of stuff and didn’t replenish it. It was an ok experience.
