Me and my fiance booked this hotel for our prewedding photoshoot.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Beautiful vintage cottage. Perfect spot for photo taking. However, the rooms are not so great. Musty bed sheets, apparent damaged ceiling plus run down and dirty showers. Will not consider staying here on my next visit.
