    Would recommend & come back!

    We really enjoyed our stay at chestnuts. The location is great, room was comfy, classically decorated and clean. Plus, the in-room breakfast was delicious!

  • 4.0.Fair

    The room no6 was cold , the fan next door run all night , lights outside kept illuminating the room every time a car passed by . The hall & our room smelt all the time of stale cooking oil from the kitchen below. When returning to the room on Sunday eve the room had not been cleaned or serviced, when mentioned to the owner Suzy her attitude changed . Not good!!

    Very friendly host, beautiful room, quiet location, breakfast was delicious especially sourdough bread (freshly baked!) The only thing that really let it down is the water pressure in the shower was almost non-existent (the water pressure of the sink next to it was great). It's a good thing I didn't plan to wash my hair during my stay or I would've been in trouble... Overall if the water pressure was fixed then there would be very little stopping me from staying again!

    Clean, excellent service & breakfast, but uncomfy

    Overall, the room, garden and building were very clean. Service was excellent, staff all friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was superb. However, the shower and actual comfort of the room was not good. Breakfast: very good. Freshly baked bread, fresh fruit salad with yoghurt and dressings. The cooked meal was very great - it far exceeded our expectations and the chef is clearly professional. Parking spaces available, though a bit tight. Walking distance to the town or lake is about 10 minutes (fast walk) or 15-20 minutes (slow walk). The actual room was decorated nicely, but overall uncomfy and we had a terrible night's sleep. The bed itself was very comfortable. However, it was hot, bright, noisy and the shower sucked. It was so hot and we couldn't open the window because it was noisy outside (you can hear the cars) and outside light streams into the bedroom. Curtains aren't very good at blocking out light. I appreciate it was unusually hot when we stayed, but even Travelodge provides fans. There is no bathtub. The shower was just bad and far below standard. It took 5 minutes to 'warm-up' and the water pressure is so low - it was like a dribble and you have to get right up to the wall to shower yourself if you aren't holding it. I think a nice shower and a good night's sleep are basic essentials and fundamental for any B&B/hotel. Even more so when you consider a lot of people who come here go on long treks around the surrounding area and come back sweaty and tired.

    One night stay

    Cosy Double Room - for cosy read small ! However it was clean and well presented. Shower cubicle a little narrow but again clean and did the job. Breakfast was fine, but everyone arrived at exactly the same time as soon as they started at 8.45 so was busy. Overall a fine place to stay.
