Pretty good

Thank you for your high scores and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Kindest Regards, Aoife & Maureen.


We were unaware towels were not provided, and with no staff available to ask for towels, alternative arrangements had to be made. This made our stay not as memorable as we hoped.

The staff could have been more friendly. We were disappointed that there were no outlets in our room. We had one outlet in the hallway that we both had to share to charge phones & cameras.

Thank you for your comments. I'm not sure what you mean by 'more friendly'. There are outlets in your room because I checked the room you were staying in. If you had asked a member of staff - we could have shown them to you. Next time you visit perhaps. Kindest Regards, Aoife & Maureen.


Very backpacker!
