Property was very tidy. room was spacious and had all I needed in it. Bathroom was very tidy and clean and pressure was good. Loved the idea of collecting the excess water for the gardens ( as there was a water shortage in the area ) from the shower warming up. Close to town but still quiet .

Thanks for your great review, we appreciate your feedback. All our units are on gas califonts for the hot water which gives great water pressure in the showers. We love hearing that you enjoyed your stay. kind regards Deborah

Room was spacious and clean. A little noisy due to being on the main road, but otherwise recommended

Thanks for your great feedback we appreciate you taking the time to review us. And yes the trade-off of being close to town and visible to passing traffic is being located on the main road. If you are not used to road noise and think it might be a problem for you let us know when you book and we will do our best to get you into a room away from the road. Personally I sleep through without a problem at all but we do understand that not everyone is like me =). kind regards Deborah
