Accommodation is clean and comfortable; the rooms are smallish, that that wasn't a problem. My room was lovely and quiet, although some guests said they had noiser rooms disturbed by the bar. The food is lovely. And the staff are amazingly friendly and helpful, making our stay an absolute delight.

Accommodated a group of 16 lads perfectly. The rooms were clean and adequate. The bar below was an unexpected bonus. The breakfasts were really top notch. All of the staff we encountered were pleasant and very helpful.
