Schönes Gebäude und Lage, allerdings sehr niedrige Räume was für die Schlafenden im oberen Bett ganz schön beengend war. Nicht so das Problem und ändern kann man es ja auch nicht. Allerdings waren Fenster und Türen überhaupt nicht dicht, was dazu führte das es unheimlich gezogen hat und Fenster und Türen wackeln hat lassen.

The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Communal space is quite limited, I think it would be very crowded in the summer. I loved the breakfast buffet. We had some stormy weather resulting in road closures, and the lovely woman on reception was very helpful with information and advice. We were kept awake by people talking in the sofa area till after 3am. There isn't much that can be done about this, except to fit a door downstairs, but I appreciate this may not be practical.
