We booked the "2 bedroom suite" in the raku house and couldn't have been more disappointed. Most significantly, the west room has no dresser or shelves. Literally. We asked and were told that there was a stand in the closet to make it easier to live out of our suit case. I subsequently talked to the owners who told me no one had ever mentioned it before. He then said he'd think about the problem for the future but the room was really too small for a dresser. Well, I think that would have been worth mentioning when I booked.
The rooms are billed as simple but they're actually barren and very worn. The full bath for the fireplace room is in the living room, another design flaw that wasn't mentioned.
The continental breakfast is a lovely idea and when we checked in we were asked how we liked our coffee; sadly, what we asked for wasn't supplied. It was readily available at the main house but that doesn't exactly count as breakfast delivered to your door. The owners had a vague interest in how things had gone wrong but didn't seem to actually think they needed to address it in terms of our stay.
Positives: the main building is lovely and the location is both beautiful and convenient. We would definitely not return.
