Poor sound insulation between the rooms. No problem for me, my neighbours were very considerate, but night owls or enthusiastic romantics next door would have been difficult.

Good room but shower difficult to control, food good but long wait for dinner even to order.

A one night stopover in a convenient location that turned out to be a very pleasant one. The room was small but clean and attractive with all expected facilities. The en-suite shower room was clean and adequately equipped but the shower temperature was somewhat difficult to control. The pub and dining room had a pleasant fell but unfortunately despite booking dinner for 7:30 it took 3/4 of an hour to even order and until 8:45 to get it. The food was good however. Breakfast was prompt and good. Read more

The general ambiance and the food (when it came).

The poor restaurant service for dinner and the shower control.
