The Mussel Boys
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 20, 2010

The cottages/cabins don't look much from the outside but they are very trendy and modern inside with good quality fixtures and fittings and a lovely king sized bed with a spa bath in the bedroom area, rather than in the bathroom. It had everything we needed, and we enjoyed our stay, but it was disappointing to find the whole kitchen and it's contents were not clean. I had to wash the pots, pans, cutlery and glasses (and in the case of the frying pan, scrub it) before I felt I could use it. I would recommend it to others but check the cleanliness as soon as you check in so you can speak to the manager if it's not OK.
