The Hayloft - 2 Bedroom
average rating of 2.0 based on 1 reviews

Not very clean in particular the bathroom.

  • 2 of 5

The toilet was all brown stains the bowl, the underside of the seat was starting to disintegrate.

There was an amount of dust around and lots of cobwebs. The whole place needed a good clean.

The £1 slot meter for electricity is completely outdated in the 21st century.

More information in the handbook would be useful.

It must be said that the location of the cottages is good. Really handy for Continentals arriving from the ferries.

My overall opinion is they do not need to rely on repeat customers.
