Owner wasn’t there when we arrived at 5:30... left phone number but we did not have a phone... waited an hour... finally found someone who could call him.. Found out our room door was open and key inside..didn’t seem very responsible thing to do. The hot water had a screech when turned on... probably air pocket but would not go away.

Thank you Anonymous for taking the time to tell others about your late check in experience. We apologise for you not having a phone to call us. We have not encountered this problem before as most guests carry a phone when travelling. We will note your concerns for future reference. Thank you also for the heads up on the screeching shower, unfortunately, as your review is anonymous I don't know which room you are referring to. I have tested all the showers, but cannot seem to locate the problem. Kind Regards, Melanie MacGregor

Was a great experience. We received a courtesy text that our room was ready and open for us when we arrived which was handy. Would stay again.

Thanks for your feedback we really do appreciate your time. Sorry the mattress was too soft, it’s hard to get a suitable mattress that feels like home. Can you please let me know which room you were in so we can inspect. Regards Melanie & Mick MacGregor
