Dear Reviewer
We appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts and comments regarding your stay with us. The double bed room is indeed cosy and yes as you stated the twin room is a lot more spacious this is due to the bed in the double being a large kingsize framed bed which most of our guests appreciate as they find welcoming and are prepared to sacrifice floor space in the room for this benefit, I also would prefer to stay away from bunkbeds as I don't feel they are 100% suitable for adults. I would be interested in hearing from you further as to where the driving directions let you down as we are from the area maybe we are used to driving them.
Thanks again for taking the time to write your review I appreciate your feedback as this is our best resource for improving our guest services
Kind regards
Lorraine King
