A great location but disappointed with the reduced reception hours. Very quiet in June so not much to do after 8pm as lots of places closed. In terms of value for money, there was less expensive accommodation nearby that looked just as good.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
Layout was unusual as there were two twin beds in the kitchen area which is right by the entrance. I guess this would be good if you had kids with you? The dining table wasn’t great and it was awkward eating at it. The main room had a seating area and queen size bed. Large deck was nice. All staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were nice and well kept.
