The rooms were a good size for a bigger group. Had a bit of a hiccup with the booking but Phil had us sorted out easy! Comfortable and clean rooms with ample heating given the cold & rainy weather! One of the rooms had a leak though caused by the terrible rains. But overall it was a great place to stay in and would recommend to others!

Nice and tidy. Clean room with good bathroom and kitchenette. Room was cleaned daily with good supplies. Comfortable for 3 people. But the our younger child had to sleep in sofa bed which was very uncomfortable.

Thanks for staying with us this weekend, we are glad you found the room clean and new and the staff helpful! In regards to room size, As your original booking with us was for 3 people, we put you in the appropriate room for your party, unfortunately when you showed up with two extra guests at the last minute, our larger room was no longer available. Thanks again and give us a call if you would like to stay with us again one day.

This place is very unassuming. It doesn't look like much on the outside, but inside is great. It's spacious and well equipped. Beds, including sofa bed, was comfy. Water pressure nice and strong. Cleanliness was 10/10. Only suggestions are that there should be blinds for the front door window to block the light that shines through at night, and there should be more hooks /hangars or racks for clothing.
