Cooking facilities were frustrating; the fridge takes a long time to chill; the mattress in the main room needs replacing; key collection email needs to be simplified - so much information is repeated; guests need to be informed if a 3rd party is given access (plumber).

We loved our stay at the Lothlorien Cottage and will will return in a heartbeat! The tranquil and secluded setting has a lovely view at the boundary of the property - our lookout. Only 2 recommendations are to leave the fridge door open between visits to air it and to have a designated area for the trash that is safe from the curious monkeys, who were adorable and no trouble at all. I highly recommend the cottage for a peaceful holiday - it was spotless, all appliances worked 100%, the bathroom is spacious - it was heaven on earth.

We loved being so close to nature, the cottage is secluded, well equipped and in beautiful surroundings, close to all the places you would like to explore. We just loved it!

Everything was beyond expectation. We loved the solitude. The facilities we're topnotch. It was a great escape.

The place was amazing, loved every minute of being there and was so sad to leave. The only thing i can recommend is to have a few more carpets inside as it was extremely cold when arriving there. Not knowing the weather it would have been nice if a gesture was made to have fire started inside to warm the cottage before our arrival as we were freezing. LOL. However our experience was fantastic and we cant wait to come again.
