Liked: I loved the overall look and atmosphere, especially in the common area.

Disliked: My only suggestion is to increase the range of the Wi-Fi. I was situated in a room towards the back of the property and the signal varied in strength.

Liked: Was in a nice area, quite close to the beach and nice lakes. They do a free pick up from the station too and dropped us off there which was really good! Staff were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Had to get crocery from reception which was annoying when there was no one on reception so we didn't have anything to eat our food with. Internet was too expensive for a slow connection on a windows XP computer.
