We booked here for a weekend getaway. Unsure who gave Ferguson's 4 star. We had a few gripes with the cleanliness of the room - the bath was dirty and there was dust throughout. The room needed basic maintenance and the kitchen and bathroom are very dated. The breakfast that was left, although nice, was insufficient for two for the weekend. The kitchen was poorly stocked for a B+B. There were no cheese plates and there were no champagne glasses. The crockery and cutlery were minimal. The pool had no shade so it was actually too hot to swim there and unsuitable for children. Was expecting more for what we paid, so it was a little disappointing.
