Negative Reviews

Poor maintenance.

The maintenance in the rooms takes a back seat, which is obvious from the dirty and stained bed covers, loose floor boards and cobwebs all around. The garden which is otherwise lovely could do with more attention and nurturing.

The rooms have no air conditioning or fans, and very small windows causing great discomfort in hot weather.

Breakfast unsatisfactory.

Breakfast has a limited menu and has been found to be unsatisfactory.
