We hebben we van onze vakantie genoten. Reviewed by Cecilia3.8★Jun 2023 "Cleanliness was not up to the expected standard." The underneath of the bathroom toilet seat was absolutely filthy. It took my partner the best part of 15 minutes to clean, not what we expected to have to do. Various kitchen dishes/plates and cutlery needed washing before we could use them. In all, the place could have been a lot cleaner.
