8.3 Excellent
Pros: The Room
Cons: Issue 1). Location was a big Issue. Unit is on a dirt track with big pot holes. This is a problem in the dark as there is no Street Lights Sat Nav could not find the Unit. No Signs to Indicate location. Had to phone unit to try and get directions, Difficult if you don't no the location of where you are in the first place. The B & B should issue a Map with explicit instructions to show where they are. Issue 2). Phone went missing when unloading bags from car (by reception Porter) Had to block phone and sim card. After two days of using car. When leaving and after the car was left open, for car wash and reloading of bags ( by same reception Porter) The phone suddenly re-appeared onn the driver seat. The Porter was clearly the person who found the phone and returned it. However the damage was done, as the sim was blocked and could not be unblocked for the durarion of our holiday. ANNOYED & ANGRY Esspecially as he answered the phone when it was rang from my wifes phone when it went missing in the first place. And when asked by the reception (when reported missing) if he had seen it, he shrugged and said no. :(
