                          Comfortable for a short stay. Shower drained very slowly, I ended up standing in a pool of water. No dishcloths provided.

                          I made the booking under the impression that I rented a cottage, which turned out to be a rather small room with mini kitchenette, right next to the lodge entrance. The room was neat and the facilities were sufficient, although the limited space got to me and became quite suffocating on day 2 of my 3-day stay. What was really uncomfortable, however, was the fact that the blinds were all completely see-through from the street/garden side, with zero privacy of the bedroom and kitchenette in the evenings, unless you would hide in the shower, with the effect that I couldn't keep a single light...

                          Double bed mattress was very uncomfortable, there was no flat sheet or duvet on the bed which we found strange. One of the comfy chairs in the lounge was broken, I would suggest that it be removed.

                          Decor a little old fashioned but clean and comfortable.

                          The place is clean and adequate, but needs some serious TLC - furniture are dilapidated, the kettle smells of burning plastic and is falling apart and the dining "bench" is dangerously close to collapse. What was most inconvenient and irritating is the fact that the owners were shining in their absence, lock up everything and don't even answer the phone. Admin and booking confirmation with SafariNow were totally ignored by the owners and their records showed that we didn't pay in full even though we did so via SafariNow 10 days in advance. When we arrived it took about 30 minutes to get a reac...
