Good 6.0
Closeness to the village, only a short walk away. Room was upstairs, no lift. Was not offered assistance with luggage. I was travelling alone, and the receptionist walked me out to my car, and he seemed to check inside to be sure I wasn’t lying. There was no need to walk me to my car parked directly outside. Not impressed by that.

Very close to the village, easy car parking, great staff, clean, everything invited in the room Would have preferred not to have a disabled room as neither if us require this facility, bathroom very spacious and airy, but if you had a wheelchair it would have been perfect.
