    A wonderful stay, particularly made possible by the attention to detail and knowledge of the manager, Linda. Nothing was too much trouble, even completing a job application form for me on her Apple Mac. Food, rooms and service were great. Good value for money.

    Hi, Is there wifi in the rooms? We would be interested if you would have two rooms for two couples for the dates of May 5th till May 9th this year. However, wifi to access the Internet would be really important for our needs. Many thanks for your assistance in answering.
