    Brilliant location, excellent value for money. Perfect breakfast the next morning. Rooms are small but perfect for the price and location. Definitely recommend this little spot. Nothing luxurious but perfect for the price.

    Yes, as others have said there are a few ensuite rooms. The one that we stayed in, had a shower rather than a bath.
