2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
This was a nice place to stay, however I ended up with two single beds. I had organised a queen bed but some how ended up with two singles we made into a double bed. The water is not drinkable and we actually both got sick from ear infections maybe the water needs small amount of chlorine in it. Overall we booked ask David without house keeping being a public holiday we never new about. No food either. I feel the water needs to be updated and a notice if no house cleaning on public holidays. Other people staying we upset as well.

We were the only guests on the property. The owners live on the property but we’re not always there. Restaurant was closed for winter. We had to go elsewhere for dinner. We were very disappointed
