 We loved staying here. We are a family of four (with 2 teenagers), so this place was on the small side for us but still felt spacious enough, and was beautifully fitted out with very comfortable beds and furnishings. We really appreciated that everything was included (linen, towels, cleaning after, etc) so made it very easy to arrive and then leave - a bit like staying in a really nice motel unit. We would definitely stay here again.
