We booked in here based on previous Trip Advisor reviews but have to admit to being a bit disappointed. We had a good welcome and the managers were very friendly and helpful. However, we felt our unit (6) was let down by a few things - 1. The freezer in the fridge didn't work (this wasn't a surprise to the manager when we mentioned it) 2. The hot water generally wasn't hot enough (we had to boil water in the jug to get the water hot enough to wash the dishes) 3. The soundproofing between our unit and the unit above us was non-existent (we could hear every foot step taken - and there were plenty!) 4. We think the description "fully equipped, modern, self catering kitchen" is a bit excessive when there is no oven - just a hob, microwave and frypan. The unit was clean and well serviced each day and we had a thoroughly enjoyable long weekend in Cromwell and the surrounding area.
