8/10 Very good

Very nice, lacking coffee.
Nice room and accommodation. Staff was very friendly. Clean and comfortable. Coffee was lacking with just one packet for the plunger and not good coffee…gotta have morning coffee. Instead we had to wait until a cafe opened to get coffee which puts a wrinkle in your daily plans.
