    Great stay
    They were easy to work with and the rooms were comfortable. Could have been a bit cleaner and better bug control. Can't beat the location, though. Loved the stay overall and the feeling was quite nice!

    A few tweaks and it could be perfect!
    Proper curtains to prevent light from entering the room would be great. A proper mixer in the bathroom vanity would be welcome as right now hot and cold water flow separately. Else it was a nice and spacious room

    Great accomodation in Thames if you have a car
    This is the best place I’ve found to stay in Thames so far. It’s comfortable and welcoming. Not too far out of town if you have a car. Beds are comfortable. The decor is a little dated. But all in good condition and clean.
