Beautiful setting, very good staff, however the room was rather tired and under-resourced.

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Both bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. We were disappointed with the lounge area table as it had a completely broken strut. There were just two teaspoons, three bowls and one still wine glass in the kitchen although we were booked for 4 pax. The emergency torch for use in a power cut did not work. While we did not have a power cut, it is important that health and safety equipment is checked and maintained. Overall we enjoyed our stay and will return. These are minor issues that can be easily resolved.

Great stay in a beautiful place
