I'm torn on how to rate this place...it's between Average and Very Good - but some very minor tweaks could make it even better. I think it operated like a Youth Hostel. We stayed for two nights. The room was great a luxurious bed, internet TV, quality bathroom with huge bath, separate shower and integral steam room. We found it quite easily and the area was a quiet residential suburb which looked as if it was part of a new build. Pleasant area and the property had been refurbished since previous reviewers I suspect.
What let it down was a a few little things; on check in our host was very polite but asked if we'd like to settle the bill before we had even seen the room. A brief explanation was given about the common room ' kitchen' saying breakfast would be laid out in the morning. Help ourselves and feel free to use the full extent of the facitlites including storing food in the full 'American' fridge and cooking in the oven etc. This we did and prepared a great evening meal, and I washed and tidied away all the pots etc. (as per YH). But next day breakfast wasn't laid out when we popped down around 8am. A little later is was but it wasn't clear what we were to have, so with a couple of muffins we headed out. Later we learnt that other guests had snaffled some of our provisions and not washed their pots (no problem), because like us they were unsure what was and wasn't the etiquette. Finally get the feather duster out on those blinds.
Hopefully the hosts will shortly provide some brief 'guidance' for guests. Just to confirm, breakfast arrangements, times, check out - suggestions for dinner and local provisions etc. Combined with the excellent facilities this place could be fantastic and part of it is. Would we stay there again? Possibly...
