6/10 Good

Was an ok stay
It was an ok stay…it would have been nice to have had some milk on the tea tray, rather than having to go down for some in the mornings and then bring it back up to the room. It would also be quite helpful to know about the buses and frequency to /from the city from the village. When asked they didn’t know. Also had an incident with an exploding hair dryer and unfortunately another one couldn’t be provided, so it was wet hair for me. However, the bed was very comfortable and the bar area was nice and inviting with its fireplace!
