  • “The bedroom bathroom and kitchen were finished to the standard we expected but the living room was set out different to photos, the restless type chair had been replaced by an old settee that looked like it was from a second hand shop, very uncomfortable.”

    The other settee was in a different place therefore the small dinning table was squashed in,to near the door way. ...

    The other settee was in a different place therefore the small dinning table was squashed in,to near the door way. On arrival we had to sweep away an army of wood lice some dead from the kitchen and living room and many at the back door . We did notice a powder had been put down, on leaving there were more again and live ones in the inner porch. The patio area needed a good clean and tidy, the furniture one plastic wicker chair looked like it came from a tip and the little wooden table needed to go to the tip, the wooden bench was dirty. Out at the front there were weeds so all in all TLC is needed. For the same pricing we have had far superior accommodation.
