Thank you so much for taking the time to review Clavie Cottage. My husband and I work very hard to make sure that our guests enjoy their stay.

Unfortunately everybody has different preferences when it comes to mattresses and we have tried to suit most people by providing a Silentnight miracoil mattress rated as medium by the manufacturer. The bed is also made up with a quilted mattress topper and quilted mattress protector. Please accept my apologies if this did not suit you as we really do want our guests to be comfortable during their stay. We do have an additional thick down topper which we could have provided if you had let us know during your stay.
