Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

Overall the property was very good but there were a few minor issues.
There were a few issues with some areas where the cleaning left a little to be desired including dead flies on the kitchen floor, the pizza cutter had been put away in the draw dirty. The plinth in the kitchen was loose and fell down when the wine cooler was opened and only two tea towels were provided. The cloths airer was broken and could not be used. By far the biggest issue was that the BBQ was dangerous and requires a complete overhaul. In essence the tray that holds the charcoal needs replacing and the rack supports are missing.
