Staff were very, very helpful - excellent in fact. 4/5

Dennis G. B, July 2010: Only two constructive observations: Reception was not easily located. Perhaps a detailed building map on-line or on the doors and a few "100 yards to Reception, THIS way" signs on the grounds might help? On the first day, I had no hot water, but it was immediately corrected. The staff were terrifically helpful and friendly. You had the right facility in the right location. Thanks! 5/5
