The building is a remarkable restoration, however the coach house room is reasonably small with a sloped ceiling. Some guests complained of hitting their heads on the sloped roof.

Dark Rooms.

While the majority of the guests found their rooms welcoming and cosy, others felt theirs were a bit dark for their liking, and needed some additional lighting.
