3/5 Okay

Stayed 1 night in Jan 2021

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Less than I was hoping
I would not recommend staying here if you don’t like spiders. All the window and door screens had holes in them. The floors were dirty. The shower pressure was terrible. No internet access but they say there is. Every morning when you leave the cottage you get to walk through spider webs as all the foliage is too close to the house. It has potential but not utilisés.
Stayed 3 nights in Oct 2020

3/5 Okay
