Dear Annonymous We usually find that when a guest does not include their name that they have something to hide and so would seem the same in this case! We know nothing about your concerns or complaint as you did not discuss the same with us. It would appear that you need to "fess up" and take responsibility for your own decisions and mistakes instead of blaming others. You failed to discuss any concerns with reception staff, during your stay if indeed you stayed at all as we have no reference of your stay. You would never have been given a "small: cabin" in place of a cottage if you had booked a cottage. This simply does not happen as a matter of policy. You would always receive the same room type as booked or otherwise given an upgrade if this was not possible. Sadly, we are not mind readers, cannot pre-empt what you have mistakenly done or help you if you have not discussed your concerns with us. You have failed as a guest! 1 out of 5

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your review. We are pleased that you found your stay good. Regarding mattresses we are sorry that it was softer than what you are accustomed to. Our mattresses are high quality mid range for firmness, so will be too soft for some and too hard for others. We wish we had adjustable mattresses to suit all but this is not an option at present. Once again thank you for sharing your review with other followers.

The upstairs suite of Sherbourne was cozy and private with everything to hand to make and ideal overnight stay. It was an easy walk to the pub for tea which was a buz, glad we booked
