Firstly, I must say that our experience of this property was confined to a stay in the self catering apartments ( Mad Hatter 2) so my comments relate to that accommodation. I cannot speak for the letting rooms in the main building as we did not see them. I will start with the positives because there were some! The staff...

Ouch - what can I say As is written, I did sit down and go through their issues on check out. We cannot please all the people all the time, but it does hurt when we fail to please. Many guests stay in our apartments and leave positive feedback, on this occasion I do feel that it was a shame...

Stayed before and maybe not as good as it used to be. One of our rooms, booked months in advance, was given away and was therefore not available. We were offered an alternative but consequently we had more of us all needing to share one bathroom which caused inconvenience. Some staff excellent, some not. Breakfast excellent. Great location.

Dear RM I am sorry, there was confusion during your stay this time. Your room was not so much given away, we thought as you were staying a few days you may wish to have an apartment, this three bedroom apartment was to sleep three people with one bathroom as per the triple room originally booked (also had one bathroom)....
