Mostly okay
This was a good safe location just outside the town, good parking facilities. Room was nice and clean, but the shower was very poor. Climbing into a free standing bath with a thick plastic curtain all the way around which when wet clings coldly to you is not good for a 70 someone!

Quaint stay.
We stayed Mockingjay room which was a 'semi-detached' lodge with veranda. Owner does not stay on premises at night so there is a door code system to access the kitchen for drinks in the evening. Unfortunately there was a power cut during our one evening there so we went to bed early! Lovely breakfast in courtyard garden.
