If you are selecting your accommodation based on the reviews you read, then the "excellent" rating here should help you decide.

We chose Alf and Margaret's place because of location, facilities and service promised. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the garden room which offers accommodation for 3 and ample self catering facilities. So although the room rate is not cheap, with 3 people and use of room facilities, it becomes more economical. The kitchen has excellent equipment by the...
