Comfortable accommodation

We booked our one night stay last minute after a few nights camping and the weather drastically changing for the worse.

We checked in and the reception from the manager was wonderful. Full explanation of the accommodation and facilities and directions to the room were provided willingly. On arrival at the room it seemed very nice and had everything we required for one nights stay, despite being slightly on the small side. On closer inspection the room was clean and generally things were as expected, however there are finishng touches missing, I do however think this is reflected in the reasonable price. We had an issue with out shower tray not draining correctly, my husband repeated this to reception and it was quickly and efficiently dealt with by the manager which was much appreciated. I must add however that I did not sleep particularly well due to the left hand side of the double bed being slightly collapsed and sloping towards the floor. I reported this to the manager when we checked out and he did say he would look into it so hopefully this will be addressed for the future. Breakfast was delicious and plenty of choice. All in all, due to the low price we would return.
