Left on 01/09/2014 for a stay in December 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jan 9, 2014Stayed Dec 2014
Hi not happy at all house is in need of a big overhaul it's need some tender loving care. Ceilings been leaking, very cold as if the heating had not been on for a long time. Washing machine dryer didn't work , no lights bulbs in some if the lights and ones that were there were dull. Decoration very grubby , all cups chipped. In living room not enough comfortable seating it a house for 5 people and 5 people can not comfortably sit in this room and smaller chairs really uncomfortable. Toilet door bolt kept cutting our hands.
We just didn't enjoy our stay here went home early, great location but just not a nice house to stay we stay a lot in the lakes and this was a great disappointment to us.
