  • "Unfortunately had problem with heating too hot made for a very uncomfortable stay."

    The shower over bath was just a push on tap affair with no where to hook it up. The furniture abit tired to be honest. The kitchen very dated but well-equipped. Staff very friendly and property was spotless

  • "The quality of the accommodation and the surroundings were outstanding, and the provision of equipment etc was fine."

    I have one important reservation / suggestion. I am slightly disabled due to major cancer surgery on my ribs and back. As such it would have been great to have a proper overhead shower or separate shower unit. (My one attempt to us bath was almost a disaster. Thanks.

  • "Although comfortable enough accommodation it was very dated and lacked more modern amenities."

    Particularly disappointed with rubber hose attachment on bath taps as the shower. There was no reception either on arrival or departure for hand over of keys or registration details. I had to leave registration details in the letter box for later collection. (The lady on the phone was helpful however). There were no on site facilities - cafe, bar, the pool no longer exists etc and although we were a couple there were no amenities for children. The place was clean, however, and the bed was comfortable. The place needs some updating. It was convenient for touring the area. However, I do not think it was particularly good value for money.
