Highly recommend
Small kitchen ✔️ Extremely clean ✔️ Great location ✔️(Grovesdale hotel right next door - really fantastic pub) Heating, cooling, electric blankets ✔️ *The only issues were one electric was loose & the plug kept falling out of the power point & the curtains didn’t quite close properly But l would still highly recommend the Golden Palm :)
