  • 8.0.Very good

    Beautiful Townhouse, great area, lovely staff, just a couple of minor niggles. Half of the double bed dipped down and seemed to be on a different level than the other half, shower had no power (but we were on top floor) and a few confusions around the breakfast order but apart from that we enjoyed our stay.
