Loved the location, central to everything we needed. Room was spacious and tidy. Local dining recommendations were great. Thank you 😀 Really really cold when we arrived and oil heater took a long while to get going. Would have loved it turned on an hour before we arrived. Room was cosy once the heater was working.
