                                      The self catering unit was easily accessible and roomy but the pillows were a bit uncomfortable and it was a struggle to open the door from the inside.

                                      Couple staying next to us started screaming at each other, using vulgar language. Rooms are very small, not many tv channels. We had marks and cigarette holes in the sheets. House keeping also made alot of noise in early hours of the morning. The beds and pillows are very hard, had to borrow pillows from family members.

                                      It was a very nice stay. Staff is helpful and there was something to do during the New Years.
