Dog enjoyed it more than us!
Overall very good. A bit pricey for what it is. Dinner was fine although veg was soggy and food under seasoned which at these prices is surprising. breakfast good although pre ordering was confusing. Good location near town which is very short walk. Staff were very nice especially in restaurant. Won’t return as it was nothing special.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
The property is well situated and onsite free parking is welcome. The bedroom was disappointing, the bed very uncomfortable and small. The bathroom looks like it has been upgraded recently and the shower was very good however it soaked the floor as the screen didn't seem to be big enough. We had dinner in the restaurant and were disappointed with the meal overall. Be prepared for a big bill as it is not inexpensive.
