Amazing place for a couple’s getaway. Super clean and comfortable, with a smart TV so you are able to access Netflix and Stan. Quiet neighbourhood and is close to many cafes and places to eat dinner! Would definitely come back.

Great accommodation but information needs updating

The advertisement and documentation supplied talk of a gas log fire. This was a key attraction in the cold conditions. However the gas and log fire have been disconnected and are no longer functional. This was a major disappointment and very annoying as it took quite some time trying to follow the instructions before it became obvious that they were no longer in use. It was a bit of a worry too as I wasn’t sure whether the gas might be still turned on somewhere. The advertisement and information provided should be corrected.
