          Nice, clean and comfortable room. The room is small but has everything you need. Decorations are lively especially for those colorful chocolate pictures. Breakfast is very good. Great service and hospitality. Parking can be a challenge.

          The rooms and the car park are small but everything is immaculately clean. The staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The breakfast is cooked to order - anything you want - and it's excellent. What's not to like?!
