Perhaps we didn’t read the write up Properly but we didn’t like the shared kitchen dining and lounge facilities also the free breakfast option is only an option if you can stay onsite after 8.30 am which didn’t work for us .Very clean and tidy but possibly a bit rich for money paid

The description does state that there are communal areas, this means shared, and when guests book they are only selecting a room, not the whole house. If guests wish to have the house to themselves they can book this through our own website, this will also entitle them to free breakfast. These guests would not have had breakfast included as they booked through a 3rd party website so bit confused by their statement regarding this. When breakfast is included all the delicious food is available in the house for guests when they check in so they can eat at an hour that suits them. We have many guests who love the house but clearly the shared facilities do not suit everyone and guests do need to read property descriptions carefully before they book, especially when using 3rd party websites as they can restrict the information we can share about our property on them.

I didn’t like the fact that it was sold as accommodation near Milford Sound, when that town is a 5 hour drive away.
