We never got a chance to stay at Deer View. We'd booked our mid-August 2009 stay months in advance, but they cancelled our booking with less than a month to go before we were due to fly up. They claimed to have organised alternative accomodation for us, but when we confirmed that the alternative was ok they ignored our confirmation email and then a day later said that we'd had our chance...too late! So we ended up with nowhere to stay and had to book a Travel lodge instead (which was ok, but hardly what we were after).
We obviously cannot rate the place per se as we never got the opportunity to stay there, but the terrible attitude of the proprietor and the way we were treated leaves us with a valid point of view that the public should be made aware of.
So be warned - book to stay here and prepare to be disappointed at short notice.
