Likes:
Quiet, clean surroundings
Dislikes:
Only one person covering Reception, Bar, Waiter and answering phone - resulting table service was very slow. Not the fault of the individual who was polite and clearly trying his best.

Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was lovely: we all got exactly as ordered, and portions were generous. We slept well on clean comfy beds.The location was very good and easy to find.
Dislikes:
Lots of little things: no bulb in bedside lamp, shower door didn't shut properly & hose leaked, shower in daughters' room not very hot, TV remote didn't work, blind broken; rooms generally bit shabby.
