Was disappointed by my stay at Sunflower Lodge. If you have a car, the Lodge is ideal, but if you don't, expect long walks to get anywhere due to the position of the Lodge. Main let down was the 'Free Bike Hire' - when I asked for a bike I was given one with broken handle bars unsecured to the main body of the bike. When I reported this I was told by the head of staff "Oh, but I pumped up the back tyre yesterday". Uh, what? Inflated tyres mean nothing if the bike is a danger to ride.


Friendly staff. Had bike to use, which was great. Good atmosphere and neat town.
