Heidi and Chris were great hosts. Our room was large and comfortable with a king size and a single bed. Also a table and two chairs, tea and coffee and biscuits. The ensuite was large. Breakfast had everything we could possibly want. There was also good free wifi on all floors. We would definitely come here again.
