Good but not 5*
Overall, the accommodation was lovely – not five-star luxury that we’d expected for the price, but we had a lovely trip away. Fridge is very noisy which resulted in a restless sleep on both nights. There was noise from the neighbouring room - you can clearly hear talking from there. No details provided on COVID precautions anywhere in the room. Initially there wasn’t anything to recognise we’re staying for our honeymoon - despite mentioning this on our booking. When we mentioned this on the check-in survey we came back to a congratulations card and a bottle of bubbly which was appreciated. The apartment was Very clean and well appointed. Bed is comfy but could do with different pillow options. Grounds are very impressive and lovely setting right on the Glamorgan coastline. Suggestions for improvement include: 1. Different pillow options, especially as the bed is so firm with the memory foam mattress 2. Better information pack - some of the content was out of date, including the WiFi, key safe box. It would’ve been helpful to have things like taxi numbers, menus from the local pub, or recommendations on the local area. There was some information in the book but it wasn’t exhaustive. Whilst I understand that it is self-contained accommodation, providing more than just a pint of milk on check-in would be reasonable, especially for the cost paid for the accommodation. How about some simple breakfast items, or just some local biscuits to have with a cuppa.

Wonderful place to stay
This place was fabulous, the grounds were stunning and the August Pop up bar in the garden was an added bonus. The Applestore was very luxurious and we were made welcome by all staff. Will certainly return and recommend highly.

We booked and paid for the Apple Store but on arrival, we dialled the provided number to get the key code, to then be told that we won’t be staying at Apple Store and we will be staying at the Stables. Even though all of my email confirmations even confirm that I will be staying at the Apple Store, they still said that it was fully booked for the duration of our stay. Although we were disappointed at first, the Stables was a lovely place. The accommodation, facilities and cleanliness was amazing. Would love to stay again. Just disappointed that the place we were staying at wasn’t what we thought we paid for.
