Management response:

We are sorry you were unhappy with our new sofa and new 5 star quality bed with matching luxury 240 thread count soft linen. Most of our guests enjoy the quaint cottage and our brand new marble bathroom. The cottage is as advertised, it's not huge but everything is there and the kitchen and dining area are a good size....
