Warners Bay
Room was large and clean except for the bathroom window ledge..covered in dust...the bed was total comfort, I loved it. The free wifi was non excistant..they said to retry after they reset it as they have been having trouble with it, but didnt work the whole stay...4G wouldnt kick in either till I had walked about 5mins down the road... The window at the side of the bed was a nausance...although it had a block out curtain it let the light from outside shine through from top & bottom all night
