If only they'd spend a bit more on this place it could be so much better.
The bedroom was quite large and the bed comfortable but the furniture was that cheap pine stuff you get at discount furniture stores- and I don't mean Ikea. Drawers stick and wardrobe doors don't fit properly. There were two wicker chairs with no cushions- not comfortable. The towels were thin and there was no bath sheet -only a skimpy bath towel. There was no hair conditioner and no hair drier. The room had twin beds and as I was on my own only one of the beds was made up. I can see why this was done but what if I'd wanted to sleep in the other bed? It somehow made the room unwelcoming.
The breakfast followed the same theme. Orange juice tasted like orange squash. Sausages could have been prosecuted under the Trade Descriptions Act. Don't think a pig had been near them.
One other point, the stairs leading to the rooms are very narrow and twisting. Certainly not suitable for everyone.
It's such a pity as the owners were pleasant and the house itself was quite attractive. I would possibly stay again because of the location and it was clean and functional.
It's right in the centre of Ashburton so convenient for the delights of the town such as they are.
