Good: - Close location with easy access to town centre. -Well maintained garden area creating a nice environment. Bad: - Uncomfortable bed lacking support due to old age. - Timber used in room construction creaks continually throughout night as temperature changes, this was very loud causing difficulty sleeping and was only communicated once we had checked in to the room via a wall poster. - Spa/pool facilities have posted limited hours of use which is not made clear when booking. These facilities have cut off hours after 7/8 pm which is when we found ourselves wanting to use/relax after a busy day exploring the local region. We raised this to the owner at the time and were allowed an exception on this occasion but something to be aware of. - Allocated carpark was occupied by another guest and when informed the owner they were not prepared to fix this and requested we park elsewhere for the night. - Complementary supplies is not provided on a daily basis, such as milk.

Very surprised to see so many complaints! We have a wide range of room types with our Lockwood studios being the cheapest option, yes the wood creaks this is a natural factor with wood buildings which is why we put a sign in the room so guests can understand. We also have brand new apartments available which may suit better however they do need to be booked in advance as they are very popular. The spa pool was explained to you that you are welcome to use it if you are quiet in the evenings and not disturbing others. The car park was occupied on new years eve when you asked me to fix that at 11.30pm I did decline to be fair you were parked 2 steps further from your room than you should have been and for this we do apologise, fortunately we did have the vehicle moved so all was not lost! Have a blessed New Year, stay safe.

Hi Sonja, Very sorry you feel that way. Our older style rooms do not have extractor fans in the bathrooms as they do have a big window which can be opened to let the steam out. We do have many different room types which contain extractor fans and heat pumps etc although they are slightly more expensive perhaps you would have enjoyed one of the more modern units better. Anyway we would love to see you again so you could enjoy the best we have to offer.
