Really clean and modern, with some extra food gifts that were really enjoyed. The black-out external shutters really keep it pitch dark when closed for a really good nights rest. Absolutely great with nothing to complain about at all.

The owner was not only efficient, but welcoming and helpful, and we would definitely recommend the property to others. We should also add that it is very well situated as regards train stations, and within minutes of the Lake front.
