Likes:
The room was clean, location great, staff friendly and helpful. Bonus to have the pub right there and dinner was delicious.
Dislikes:
No. The pub does stay open until 11 and our room was right by the patio. If you like to go to bed early and are a light sleeper I would request a room on the other side. It was no problem for us.
