Great review and another VERY happy guest. So pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and it's lovely to have our efforts so appreciated. Safe journeys and hope you find other "gems" like ours. All the best, Marilyn,

Hi Lyn, You booked though Expedia and this is the room you booked, so there are no excuses as to where you were you staying.. We do have night locks on all the bedroom doors. Unfortunately we couldn't move you rooms as we were busy....More
