We arrived late to this property and still had not been able to eat dinner. The property manager called the only place open to start an order for the 5 of us. He set us up in the lounge to share our food. Rooms were large and comfortable.The breakfast was wonderful. Just a reminder, you will get the outside key also, take it with you when you go outside, to avoid being locked out. (Clearly my fault)
