“Not just a case of deja vu.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2008

I arrived at Brook house with the distinct feeling that I had been there before. I had 4 years ago! That should give you an indication of how much I enjoyed staying there. The room I stayed in had it's own shower and a small lounge and kitchenette. The hospitality is second to none, the rooms were clean and tidy, fresh towels were provided, the lounge and kitchen upstairs are at the guests disposal. The owner Judy has a wealth of knowledge regarding the local area and can always recommend things to do/ places to eat. The view from the breakfast table is spectacular.

This really is a home from home, nice spacious room but best of all was the lovely kitchen/lounge area which is for sole use of guests. The owner Judy makes muffins and leaves them for guests to enjoy beside the lovely log fire with a cup of tea! Nice garden outlook, free Internet and unbelievably good value for money. I could not recommend this place highly enough! And do not be put off by the appearance of this place from the outside...it looks like nothing until you are inside!!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2007

Our room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. It was on the second floor along a shared balcony with a good view of mountains in the distance. Facilities were not en suite, but were clean and well kept and due to the size of the place, were not too busy. Breakfast was left out in the kitchen for us to eat on our schedule--bread for toast with lots of spreads, fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, muffins, juice, and hot water for coffee/tea/cocoa. The owner, Judy, is very friendly and helpful--when she saw us hanging our wet gear on the balcony railing, she offered to throw our stuff in her dryer for free. There is a very sweet black mini poodle, Louise, roaming the premises. All in all, a pleasant place to stay.
