We have recently spent two nights at this property, the building is very well maintained, the managers Lisa and Michael extremely accommodating. But... does this fall into the category of luxurious, I am afraid not.
Fortunately we purchased this through Living Social Deals at approximately half the price, and for that, very satisfied. Would I pay full rates - absolutely not. My reasons are really very simple, for the full price, top end toiletries should be provided, they are not. On the wall container in the shower with shampoo, conditioner and soap, the latter two dispensing nothing. Absolutely no provision of toiletries for the jacuzzi bath.
Not luxurious towels, the bed was made by throwing the comforter up, no straightening of sheets etc.
Continental breakfast provided was adequate, but it would have been nice to see bread covered to keep fresher, cream served in a cream jug large enough to serve 8/10 guests without having to request it, even though the request was addressed immediately and with good service.
I wonder if Lisa and Michael are having to try to run a 'luxurious pension' without the budget for providing the luxurious goods. Owner please take note.
But, would I stay in a property with Lisa and Michael as the Managers...yes, without a doubt.
