    Located outside town by about one and a half km, advantage there being secluded and quiet. Room very clean and tidy looking out onto well looked after lawn/garden, all usual facilities with a continental breakfast included , staff very welcoming and friendly, only addition could be Sky tv channels.

    Unit was clean and cozy but compact. This place is in the middle of nowhere although it is within 5 mins driving distance to the town center. Closet and tea making facilities were cramped into one space. Overall, a good stay if you're just passing through and need a place for the night.

Continental Breakfast was OK but did not offer fresh fruit during our stay. There was not the selection as found in many continental breakfasts. The hostess did offer an Internet access code when we requested the same but it would not connect.
