We arranged to have breakfast served at 8am on the Sunday but none of the staff was in sight come Sunday morning. So we paid for - but received no breakfast.

We had an amazing time at Quinnest, Quintin is a very good host and made us feel at home. We loved the layout of the room. It was a very calming and relaxing weekend, we loved the dogs, they made us feel at home as well. Next time we will bring along our Jack Russel to play with them.
