Without geting in to much details I would definitely recommend this place, great breakfast, friendly staff and the most comfotable King size bed by far.... slept like a King every night. Will be back again forsure.

      The venue has great views and is perfect for a weekend away. The only issue for me was the gentleman who was assisting us with checkin did so in his underwear, he was very rude & unprofessional. They also got our booking wrong & we were allocated to the wrong room which was much smaller than the one we had paid for.
