Liked: The property itself is very well maintain given its age. And there is no key!

Disliked: If you are driving, the driveway is a bit hairy!. Might want to consider street parking if you have one of those small cars.

Liked: The moment that I walked into The Manor House I felt very welcomed and the staff that work there are awesome for giving you the whole low down of the house, town, activities you name it. I really enjoyed the atmosphere there and in the end did not want to leave because of the friendliness of the people working, living and traveling there. The showers are amazing there too! Was nice with the free Internet and the discounts on the activities. And there was a cat :)

Disliked: Kitchen was sometimes very messy. Rooms were freezing cold some nights. Needs more Plug ins or even just a power cord in the room.
