When I pay 5 star prices for a 5 star place I expect 5 star quality. Not sure which criteria was considered for the rating but a review should be considered.
The accommodation was good and the general feel of the establishment was great, however the parking is an issue especially when the owners have guests over and when you get back from eating out (because they don't do dinner) and there is no place to park.
The wifi in the room was hardly worth the effort and the plumbing was noisy.
When we enquired about an establishment for dinner we were told we could walk to a restaurant close by. This was not only a far distance to walk it was also very unsafe. Irresponsible by the owner.
Our stay was enjoyable but not fantastic. if the owners genuinely took an interest in all their guests, irrespective of class or status, I expect they would actually deserve the 5 stars.
