  • "The quality of cleaning was just adequate but not up to the standard we have experienced at other Best of Suffolk properties ."

    An inability to control the central heating was unacceptable for a property of this size and expense - the weather varied enormously during the week of our stay and we were cold at times . Had your details pointed this feature out we would not have booked the house . Other than that the house was great - which only made the inadequacies more disappointing .
