Having booked a double bedroom, i was disappointed to find that i was given 2 single bedrooms, albeit next to each other, but not ideal with young children. I was also disgruntled to find that the bathroom was out in the foyer so each time you wanted to use it, you had to leave your room. Air conditioning unit failed to work also, not good in summer.

It was great having a really good kitchen to make meals, and a fridge in the room. Excellent place to stay well situated with secure parking for car and bikes!
