We stayed in the 2 bedroom/2bathroom cottage at the rear of the property. We stayed for 1 night in early January (hottest and muggiest time of year). There were no fans or aircon in the rooms. We couldn't sleep with windows open as gardens were quite overgrown and Mosquitos were in abundance. One bathroom had a leaky toilet which made the place smell of sewage. The shower head was broken and unusable. The other bathroom had the previous occupants hair everywhere. Self catering facilities were average - we had to rinse dishes in the bathroom basin as there are no other washing facilities. The blinds in the one room were broken so you couldn't roll them up. Furniture VERY dated as well as decor. Overall I found the place pleasant but a bit expensive for what was on offer. The manager was new so we can't blame him, but the place seems generally run down.
