  Lovely Place
(United Kingdom)   Mrs Whitehouse 17 June 2014
We had the interleading rooms so our whole family could be together and it worked out wonderfully. The rooms were clean and all self catering equipment was supplied. Sue was very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast was delicious. Would definitely recommend this well positioned establishment.

I had an excellent stay. It was fresh, neat and clean and I will come back for another stay very soon.
