We stayed here for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it, it was close to a train station (5 minutes walk) and very close to some lovely restaurants. The facilities were very good. There was a very wide selection of food at breakfast, the staff were superb and very friendly throughout. Although close to a main road but that was easy to ignore thanks to the music by the pool, there was lots of comfortable seating throughout the garden. The room was very reasonably priced, very clean.
The only downside is we had a number of issues with the shower, it kept leaking and the toilet seat kept coming lose. The staff were very helpful and always sent someone relatively quickly to fix it, but sadly it did break again. A minor nuisance but something which they???ve hopefully fixed because there was so many other positives.
