An historic property, which is well kept, comfortable and well positioned. Very clean overall. Kitchen organised but with many people using it can get to needing an extra tidy. plenty of fridge space, but only one small freezer, so don't buy a packet of ice creams before checking there's room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Comfortable common areas to sit and read, watch tv, have a chat with other travelers. Needs comfortable, towels of good quality. Lovely outdoor areas to sit in the sun or cool evening air. Very secure. Will stay again and recommend to travelers on a budget.
