Our room was warm, great shower, a comfortable king bed and clean. Couldn’t use the small outdoor deck as was cold and wet. We stayed 2 nights and it was fine. Did some laundry there which was helpful. Don’t expect too much.

A lovely wee setup and very friendly and helpful staff. A great place to stay with multiple couples as you each have your own room setup in a standalone bulding, but there is room to come together on the wee cottage decks. A great deal too.

Our family of 3 stayed at cottage number 7 for 4 nights. I liked that we had allocated car parking right outside our unit. We were given a Queen bed and a Single bed in the simply-designed room, which worked perfectly for our accommodation needs. The room was cosy, with double-glazed windows and doors, and with a fly net over the bathroom window. Staff were happy to change our linen and towels on request in addition to doing so on a schedule every alternate day. I liked the commitment to sustainability where soap in the kitchenette and bathroom were topped up in the refillable containers (rather than supplying disposable small containers for soap). They also provided sufficient towels, and had a helpful policy for customer-driven towel replacement. There’s a coin-operated laundry (washing machine and dryer) that we used to our satisfaction. We felt well looked after during our stay there. Kudos to the staff and management.

We spent one night at 10 cottages and enjoyed our stay. The rate was very reasonable and the room was clean, tidy and modern. The service was fine and the location is walking distance to the town centre (only two blocks away). The only downfall is that the cottages are very close together, apart from that it was a lovely place to stay
