We stayed 1 night recently and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean. The bed was really comfy, so much so that I am in the process of finding out what mattresses they use! The breakfast buffet was good quality and vegan margarine and soya milk were provided on request. A short walk...
