8/10 Very good

The stay itself was amazing however a slight misunderstanding with our booking. My stay was booked for the 18th of March to the 20th however Jo had it in her calendar for the 19th. We were still given a room however not the one we paid for Jo was very apologetic. The room we were given on the 19th was beautiful and lots of nice touches. Freshly baked biscuits, a cheese platter and wine.
