Overall great service! I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and tea/coffee options. I would have appreciated options for snacks or light food (perhaps a vending machine) that one could pay for in addition to the pizza drinks meal.

The view from the bedroom was beautiful. Car parking and the flowers and chocolates that were left in the room were a nice gesture
