Verified reviewvery good

Wonderful friendly welcome on arrival and a call to check what time that would be. Room was very neat and clean and had the biggest, most cumfi bed. We opted for the self catering option but when we were offered brekkie we decided why not and so glad we did - lovely selection of foods, made to order, such good value for the price. Thanks again for a wonderful stay and another shout out to the wonderful staff for making our stay so pleasant. Kind Regards, Leigh
