Liked: Nothing.

Disliked: We stayed in a garden hut that was just painted. The paint was still wet when we got there in the evening and was smelling badly. The bathrooms are below average and tall people are unable to stand upright in the shower.It is quite far away from the city centre, restaurants, shops etc.
