4/10 Fair

Some people are easily pleased
Lovely home but not for paying guests. Only 2 plug sockets in the room so had to move the kettle to make a cup of tea and my friend scolded her foot and only a little milk provided. Mattresses too soft and need replacing. Good breakfast but had to sit at the same table as the other guests which if I would have known beforehand I wouldn’t have booked. No bannister which along with the plug sockets is a health and safety issue. Nice views in the lakes. It’s not a hotel it’s someone’s home charging hotel prices.
