Room was acceptable, windows didn't open, shower's hose was damage and could barely take a quick shower. Instead, the food was delicious, everything was clean and good served, as well as the drinks!!!

We stsyed two nights on a Groupon Deal. Very welcoming, comfortable room, friendly stall, with a lovely breakfast. Our bathroom had been refurbished to a high standard. And the dining room was being decorated also. This did not detract from our visit. We would certainly visit again.
