Night away
Very pleasant stay with courteous staff and good facilities. Comfortable room and nice atmosphere around the hotel. Really good to see the local produce on offer throughout the hotel including the bakery and gift shop. The breakfast area was a bit small so there was a short wait for breakfast but there was a generous offering. Good stay overall.
