Liked: Staff were very helpful, great building, tidy warm rooms, great breakfast (may not be included in price - double check when booking)

Disliked: No internet in the house or at any nearby location, quite a distance from town, quite a messy neighbouhood - seemed to be rubbish everywhere except for around the guest house

Family Holiday

05 January 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I found the staff helpful.

Disliked: We were told breakfast was at a certain time but we were not told if it was included or not so we had a mix-up. The only way to get there was by taxi which isn't ideal. There wasn't always a staff member at the front desk. The entrance also had a strange smell.
