Great location, very handy to town and restaurants. Car parking is minimal, beds were very comfortable and the shower pressure was great. I wasn’t so happy that the shower was over a spa bath, we both struggled with the height of the spa to step into the shower, definitely not bath people and would have preferred just a shower. Overall would be happy to stay again.
