"Very peaceful and relaxing"
We enjoyed a pleasant stay for one night, the place does look a bit more tired than it appears on the photos, but it is very well equipped and the sofa was certainly comfortable enough for us to nod … More
The eco friendly LED lighting certainly does not make the room bright like the photographers lighting system. Maybe the antique oak furniture pieces were not to your liking but we think they add character to the room. The 32" TV works fine, it just takes a few minutes to warm up but also will soon be upgraded. Thanks for your feedback.
