Positive Reviews

Immaculately clean and well maintained

Several guests mention not simply how clean their rooms were, but also how the entire property was kept immaculately clean and in good repair. Guests seemed to be saying that the little things where being taken care of, which greatly impressed them.

Wonderful breakfast experience

While the hotel doesn't serve other meals, guests were very impressed with the breakfast indeed. They describe it as both tasty, and a substantial meal more than sufficient to get them through to lunch. But it was the setting which seemed to most impress them. They really liked the elegant surroundings and the crisp white linen tablecloths.

Excellent staff engagement

Both the owners and their staff are described as incredibly friendly and welcoming, and not able to do enough for their guests. They mention occasional acts of kindness that went far beyond the call of duty.

Negative Reviews

Private, but not en-suite, bathroom

Going by guest comments there is at least one room which has its private bathroom not en-suite, but across the public hall. Most did not seem too fazed by this, but others did feel a bit awkward using it in the mornings, when other guests might be up and about, and they were in their pyjamas.

Limited parking

While motorists were grateful that there was off-street parking available, they went on to add that there were only a limited number of spaces, and they sometimes couldn't secure a spot when returning.

Extremely late check-in

It seems that some guests were asked to check in very late indeed, in early evening. There is some uncertainty whether this is a general regulation, or crops up on only some occasions. In any event a few guests commented that it was a very peculiar and inconvenient check-in time.
