    Hello, Thank you for the feedback, which room did you stay in? I will look into what went wrong. I never like to hear comments like this but we do take all feedback positive and negative very seriously. Aaron.

    We've stayed here a few times and everytime we're more than impressed. The rooms are tidy and the staff very friendly. Its handy to local bars and restaurants also having their own on site. We're booked in again next year. Looking forward to it.
