The room was excellent, room was very clean and tidy. It would always get my recommendation. I made a booking for four persons and i got the family room but what i didn't notice is that you guys had change that. I doubled check before i booked it but didn't check back after i booked it to see that it was only book for 2 adults. Something any would feel mad about when get to the checkout and find out that you only pay for 2 adults and not four person.. nevertheless the place was excellent and the people was very nice

Thank you for your concerns. I think you thought you were replying to Expedia but you have reviewed our site. The booking did show as being made for 2 guests so not sure where things went wrong. We did however waiver the extra charges for you.

I am sorry your stay was not to your expectations. We were surprised that you felt you had nowhere to hang things. There is a wardrobe and hangers in both bedrooms. A hook is situated on the back of the bathroom door for robes etc. Towels and tea towels etc are changed daily. We have a lot of comments about our comfortable beds even some asking the brand name. It was explained to your on check in that we only have one two bedroom unit so could not change your unit location in the complex.
