We enjoyed the stay here. There are minor things but nothing hectic. My one thing is making it welcoming, a card or chocolates or warm on arrival, I know we arrived late after car problems. But we got called several times to see that we were safe!!! THANK YOU

We had a double room with a really good quality bed and bedding but only one hand towel, no soap in bath/shower.(There were two bath towels)No fan. Dinner was very good and the hosts were really nice - BUT a little more is needed to make it worth the cost. Just small things but they are important. TV in the room might be an idea too.
