    Newly refurbished and great service

    Recently refurbished kitchens and bathroom were in excellent condition. Very spacious and comfortable bed. Only small complaint was that water pressure wasn’t great. Staff were so helpful. Looked after our luggage and gave us a temporary room while we waited for a pick up.

    We booked the water front facing unit. A lovely little deck with a couple of chairs and a small table to sit and watch the sunset. Outside on the grounds there is a big chess set to play with. It is a 5 minute walk to decent restaurants and 10 minutes to walk to the other side of the town.
