Positive Reviews

The little things really do count.

Travelling round the island on foot or by car or bicycle, can be tiring. It’s a really nice touch and much appreciated, to find a complimentary bottle of water in the room, on your return.

Free parking.

Brilliant staff.

Helpful, informative, couldn’t do more. They deserve a medal – or at least a pay increase!
