This property is advertised as having 'luxury, unique, boutique accommodation'. It didn't live up to any of these descriptions! We were told we would have a double room with a terrace and a hill view. The room had neither. The 'terrace' is a metal walkway up one set of metal steps - outdoors. The 'hill view' was a grassy bank outside the window that you couldn't see over! We were also not told that the room was up a flights of stairs and that we would have to go outside, without cover, to leave the room, or go to breakfast! In addition, if we wanted a drink in the 'bar' after 8:00 p.m. we were given a telephone number we had to ring to get staff to come to serve us. And apparently, sometimes the chef was not available at breakfast time so breakfast would be served in another establishment up a steep hill! All this information is not available on the website and we only discovered it when we booked in. We only stayed long enough to see where the room was, note the lack of facilities and general inconveniences involved, and book out again! This is not the place for you if you are looking for 'luxury, unique, boutique accommodation!
