Thanks to Suzan at the reception, we were able to have a nice room with a bath which I was very much looking forward to…even with a wedding onsite, we had a great quiet sleep. If the weather had been better, that would have been a perfect getaway. We’ll see next time perhaps :-)

6/10 Good

Not worth it
For the price of the room, we were extremely disappointed. No fridge and no microwave in the room. The walls were extremely thin and the room next to us was up loudly until 2am. The worst part was they had the heat cranking all night and we were drenched in sweat and were barely able to sleep.

Paying for location
You are paying for location. The furniture is old they had a portable air conditioner in the room, which was so loud you had to leave it off. The hair dryer fell off the wall. There was no way to hang a towel when you get out of the shower. No handles in the shower in case you slip. No screens on the windows.
