Liked: The place was ok, but not clean. The sheets were not clean, they had clearly been used by someone else before.The location is good only if you go by car, and if you arrive later than 17.00 you will have to phone the person in charge because there is nobody at reception.

01 June 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Location. Ample parking. regular police patrol. Only thing I did not like was the people from another party who decided to use the shared living room for two of their party to use as a bedroom. This meant that we coud not use the living room or table. Whoever agreed to let them stay like this was not considering the needs of the others.
