Good property

  • 4 of 5

Overall the house was good. Good location, kitchen, lounge. Parking was ok, even though we had 4 card.

Only bad thing were the mattresses in 3 of the queen rooms. They were 3 of the worst mattresses myself and 3 of my colleagues have ever used.

Also, I asked for a light in my bathroom to be replaced and never heard from the manager.

I would stay there again if I knew the mattresses were replaced.

A heritage hotbox

Jan 2018 - At first glance this property looked great but a lack of cooling in mid summer did somewhat mar our enjoyment. Needs some tender loving care to repair and fix up. A bit disappointing.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in our large family group thoroughly enjoyed staying in this house. It was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for everyone. The children enjoyed watching the large fish eating the zucchini and loved playing in the courtyard and the room between the dining room and the large passageway. The house is in an ideal location with plenty of eating places nearby. This is a very well equipped and very comfortable house.

Great Place for a Family

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be clean and well equipped.

Conveniently located to points of interest and restaurants.

The children in the party found enjoyed watching the fish eat the zucchini in the big fish tank..

The availability of Wi Fi would help but we survived without it.

We travel with our own pillows and were glad we had as the pillows supplied were a bit hard.

We would stay here again if we were travelling with the family
