‘We were very happy with the accommodation thank you. Manor House was very hospitable and comfortable and the students really enjoyed their stay. We hugely appreciated the washing being done and the free wifi certainly helped to entertain the students. Fridge space was ample. We would certainly stay again for future tournaments.’
