6/10 Good

Not bad but not great either
Excellent service by host. Parking available for a car or 2. Room clean and comfortable however was very cold. This ruined my stay. Needed extra heater. Used aircon to get some warmth. Shower was good. Main disappointment was not refunded for part of stay as had to leave 2 days early.
