Stayed here twice. The rooms in the main building are so nice. Modern, clean, spacious. The rooms in the annex not so. Restaurant is great, especially the breakfast staff who were always really lovely!

"Don't stay in the garden wing"
"Request a room in main building (housing the reception), not in the adjoining building and a larger room."
"a room with a balcony"
"room 304 was noisy from the kitchen area located on the floor just above. also had a leak in the ceiling coming from kitchen area above it."
