The note on the door telling you to check your emails on arrival for access didn't help as I'd had none. Pressing the doorbell resulted in the door opening to a startled Chinese lady who spoke no English but lived in room 3 just inside. She ran round the back and obtained help form another man in the back garden...

Having booked a family room for 3 of us for 2 night by phone the week before we arrived a little jaded after a long journey to find that our family room was a very small double room with half a camp bed (yes you read that correctly) with a stained duvet with no cover on for my son to...

No staff onsite when I arrived, just a phone number on the door. When Eva drove up she insinuated that another guest had the key to my room before she realised they had no room available for the first night of my booking. STILL awaiting my refund.

Nice and friendly stuff. Also very flexible. Nice breakfast. Clean and good. Free parking and they put maximum effort to satisfy their guests. Relatively quiet location. Our family room was good, we have a big flat TV as well.

I booked in here due to an emergency situation for one night - due to the emergency my phone battery was flat. My husband booked this guesthouse on line for me. When I arrived there was no one on reception and I couldn't get in until another guest entered. There was, I discovered, a key box outside but due to...

We were greeted by a friendly lady who showed us our room. The room was less than adequate for our needs firstly we were a group of 3 adults... We were given a room with 1 double bed, 1 childrens/teen bed that had a pull out underneath so one of our group spent a few nights on the floor. The...

The room stank - there was clearly a sewage problem in the ensuite which was revolting. There was a large amount of mould on the bathroom ceiling. The furniture was dirty & stained. The bed was broken on one side, so when you laid on the bed the mattress fell through the frame on to the floor. Stained towels. Revolting...

Let's start with one common theme we are all in agreement with (all accept one but hey you can't please them all). We assume the owner is the lady that greeted us on arrival and yes, she was really sweet and had a lovely cheery disposition. The room we had was far more impressive than the cold looking and dour...

Friendly reception. Disappointed with the standard of the room and en suite in terms of the quality of furnishings and fittings both of which could be enhanced at a fairly modest cost. However, the continental breakfast exceeded our expectations with a good choice of fresh foods.

Lovely from the front and average inside but clean and cosy room. The owner was not really present upon arrival which was good at first (after a long drive and not really wanting the usual chit chat) but we could have done with a heads-up on the breakfast situation. The room was small but still nice with shared bathroom which...

“Check emails 48 hours before arriving, for an entry code- without that, initial access is dependent upon the owner happening to be around!”
