Great to have pet friendly accommodation that’s well equipped, clean and tidy at a reasonable price. It’s so hard to find reasonable places that will accept furry friends so we thank you for accommodating this. Great kitchen facilities and a super comfy bed!

Good, But bathroom carpets are very slippery. And can't go up to the bunk bed. No lader. It's not safe for the children.

2/10 Poor

Complete disappointment. Thinly panelled room, barely room to turn around. No sink in en suite bathroom and single bed mattress so worn out that it sunk straight into the frame underneath. The facility looks like an old army barrack and the TV was something out of 1970s, with 2 channels. Kettle available but no coffee or tea provided. Description read "large open space area with more than enough space to sleep 3"that's a complete misrepresentation and at the price charged is a joke-a ridiciolous joke... Walls as thin a pair... How do es this place stay on business?
