Reviews of the Willow Room

Really pleased with the room it was just the right size everything was white clean airy and loved the fairy light wall lovely touch (for our baby shower).

Comfortable room with access to all the equipment we needed - very quiet too, which helps when you are holding a "head banging" business planning meeting!
