8/10 Very good

the room was very clean and quite large the TV and lovely bathroom toilet, be careful when parking as the tyre back stop very high and we damage the underneath of our car slightly okay if you are a big four-wheel-drive. Other issue is there was no electric car overnight charging would have been handy

Welcoming and helpful staff. Good sized room (and en-suite) which was very comfortable and well equipped. An easy 5 minute walk to the lake with a good choice of restaurants close by. Perfect for our overnight stay. We will return!
