“Functional Living but certainly not Luxury”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2010

Visiting the area for a wedding. With two young kids. We were forced to stay 2 nights which is fair enough in this area, but were led to believe from all their advertising that - for 770 for two room cottage including 1 days continental breakfast - we would be getting a luxury (it is on the signage at the front gate for example) experience. This is not luxury. Whilst functional it is not luxury and not worth 770 unless you HAVE to pay it - which we did - as there was nothing else in the area close to the wedding. The continental breakfast is a loaf of white bread, pre packaged long life fruit, 4 little cereal boxes. The kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and furnishings are extremely basic, at best 2 star. We hope that this review will help ensure that we (as the paying public) don't reinforce the practice that just because hotels and inns charge a 4/5 star price and say so, that it is luxury - because it is aint - until you deliver it.
