Negative Reviews

Ugly Bug Ball

Though most reviewers vouch for the cleanliness of accommodation at this property, a few were creeped out by sightings of crawling insects, especially those who found bugs scaling the bedroom walls at night. Since mosquito nets are not provided, travellers might think about bringing their own.

Potholes and Punctures

The jury is out among those who took advantage of the free bicycle hire. Many families have enjoyed whizzing around the locale on two wheels, but several other guests were left stranded when their poorly maintained bikes ran aground after an encounter with one of the areas many potholes.

Bathroom Beefs

Not all reviewers like the somewhat bohemian, and partially outdoor, bathrooms in guestrooms. Some gripe about the lack of a door between the living space and bathroom amenities, while a couple of other reviewers have complained about slow drainage of shower water and resulting flooded floor.
