  • "We were disappointed that there was a lot of dust about on many surfaces in the bedrooms and the living room."

    The beds were very comfortable and the facilities are excellent, particularly the bathroom. The location is ideal as it is within walking distance of the town centre where there are many shops and restaurants. Just one suggestion - we bought fresh fish from Weyfish by the harbour but we couldn’t find a fish slice in the kitchen and the frying pan is so warped that it doesn’t sit flat on the hob.

    Hi Nicholas, thank you for your feedback and I am sorry you found the cleaning due to dust not up to standard. I will feed this back to our cleaner to ensure we keep to our high standard of cleanliness. Also happy to purchase a fish slice and a new frying pan - I do replace it each year but we have been fully booked since Spring and not had a chance to do our annual deep clean and check all our equipment. Glad you had a nice holiday and hope you come back and stay sometime in the future. Bridget Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay, the property is well equipped & is the perfect size for two adults but can accommodate another two people."

    The proximity to everything was perfect for us. We would walk to the harbour & main beach every day with the dogs, around 30 mins steady walk passing Nothe Fort on route. The sea is literally around the corner from the property. The walk that leads from there was beautiful and great if you like taking photos. Perfect location. We would happily stay there again.

    Hi Linda, so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon. Bridget Property Owner
