Thank you Twizel
A pleasant stay at the countryside. A lot of parking space, wide selection breakfast, comfy beds. Only bad thing was the noise from other rooms (thin walls).

Great hotel for a short stopover. Buffet dinner was lovely. Hotel was quite dated though, felt like it was out of the 70’s or 80’s and wouldn’t accept a contactless payment. Room was huge which was nice
