"Talk to receiption, very helpful"
"Don't just go for a meal.. book a room and relax.. treat yourselves.."
"Courtyard rooms are slightly cheaper. The bathrooms may be better, but the bedroom is not (according to one reviewer)."
"We wanted a double but were only offered a twin as it was the last room available."
"Ask at reception for room details. However, all rooms are quiet."
