WC is very clean, if you drive through Kingston, you shall stop and take a break. We have been seated next to windows, that's fantastic to enjoy the mocha with nice snow mountain view

The only place in the sleepy hollow of Kingston. Food was great, hot drinks were lovely and the WIFI worked. Couldn't ask for more. Also the bar looked really well stocked and inviting. The toilets looked new. 😊
