The experience ratings on this property are grossly overrated.
The location is not good and parking is tight. The room on ground floor was adequate with all needed facilities but too small for our travel needs. The curtains in the room were of light material and did not block out the early morning light (summer time 4.45am) which led to inadequate sleep. There was a pervading odour in the house and room, possibly from the cleaning agents used, which I found mildly nauseating. We had booked for 2 nights but cancelled the second night and found other accommodation. However, I must say that the Manager Nicolai was most obliging in every respect, courteous and extremely helpul.
Not Good Value
I was so disappointed when we arrived at the property, it was like a 1960's children's home.
We were told that breakfast would be served between 7am & 9am, this was on a Sunday and not a cooked breakfast. We were then told we had to be out by 10am so the room could be changed round. My biggest gripe is how they charge £90.00. We felt cheated as we drove off at 9.30am
