  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Perfection in a place where that is a high bar. Close to the hurly burly when you want that and it is an oasis of calm, luxuriant beauty, stuffed with history, charm and artistic flair. Your hosts are welcoming, warm, intelligent and super talented with a back story which is fascinating, who doesn't want to be around folk who were set and costume designers for Lord of the Rings etc? The Building is beautiful and historic, the gardens are magnificent, lush and wonderful and they even have doves! The breakfasts are also plentiful and brilliant with home made prize winning jam and marmalade along with everything else a big hotel would offer. We will definitely be back.

    The property condition is "old"; after all, the house was built in mid 1800! Still, the rooms offer coziness and charm; the gardens are lovely, owners are friendly, and the breakfast is spectacularly wonderful.

  • 2.0.Poor

    The bed and bathroom are clean, other places are very dirty and dusty. Vintage doesn’t mean dirty, there are lots of spider silks around the little garden and walkway outside the staple suite, the room has no air conditioning, which mean you have to open some windows for ventilation, but all windows are actually glass doors, if you open windows mean you open the doors while sleeping without locking, next to our room is a backdoor entrance to and from the street, but it was not locked! Which means at night, if you want to have ventilation and open some “windows” of your room, people from street can enter your room freely without a lock, we were not dare to sleep at night!
