Christina, Sep 2021

The house/hotel is super cute. Loved that’s nearby everything.

Anonymous, Dec 2014

Pros. Staff were accommodating for our later than planned arrival. When we presented the challenge of having an unstable toilet we were promptly offered a different room to try which had it's own wobbly toilet. The free breakfast consists of fresh fruit, cereals, juice, and coffee. All were fresh. Overall the staff were friendly.

Cons. Fixtures and fittings are not well-maintained. We tried multiple rooms and found more than one with loose, wobbly toilets. Some had flickering fluorescent light fixtures with bulbs nearing the end of their lifespan which should have been changed. The window coverings on the entry doors didn't prevent passersby from seeing inside the room when lights inside were on. Televisions are ancient both in the room and the breakfast area. The wood-burning fireplaces are a nice touch but without any fireplace tools available in the room it made shifting logs a creative challenge.

Pros. lovely room decoration, room space; location; quiteness; reasonable parking fee.

Cons. none
