We stayed in the Gatehouse, an old Villa which has been made into four separate rooms. We were a little disappointed as it was advertised as private, within walking distance to town, and with a cafe next door. There was very little privacy, we had to walk past another room (which opened out on to the verandah) to get to our room. We could hear the guy next door blowing his nose and another group of people decided to sit out on the lawn right outside our bedroom so we had to pull our drapes in the middle of the day. Disappointing. Town was a 15 minute walk away. The Cafe, despite being a holiday weekend in the middle of summer, it was shut by 5.30 pm at night which again was disappointing. The room itself was very cramped and the tea/coffee making facility more so being stuck in a corner with no light. Breakfast was in-room but it was too cold to sit outside and as there was one armchair, one of us had to sit on the bed to eat. The television did not work. Office hours were limited, so we left a note, but had no response. On check-in we asked for a recommendation for dinner and the receptionist tried a local restaurant but when the number was engaged, just handed it to me and told me to ring myself. I felt a little care and assistance to strangers in town might have been nice. Would we return? I don't think so.
