Nothing really impressed us. The utensils were substandard so many things were not available, frig, freezer because the freezer didn't work. There was no acholol was not allowed, we only have one drink for dinner, Owner and family lived above us and because of the wooden floor we heard every footstep and it was very annoying when we wanted quiet time or to sleep. Parking was supposedly off site, which we only found out about when we checked in, my wife was on crutches so not suitable at all. The washing machine in our area we couldnt use as the owners had their washing in, Some for a couple days before removed so a health hazard, All tourist information was out of date. He wanted us to check in at 5.30pm, every other holiday place we have stayed in has been 2pm. When we were allowed in he then made the bed and did some basic cleaning, There were trip hazards outside our door and we had to move them, large blocks etc

Night on the steepest street
We had no idea when we booked that we were going to be in a special stop. The room was fine, although we could not get it quite warm enough for our comfort. We thought there was a washer/dryer, coffee, etc, but there was not. Be sure to read all the description before you book.

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
When I arrived to the property to stay, the only thing I found good was the cleanliness. The gentleman that ran it was not very appropriate other than show where things were to use if wanted, but the idea of explaining to me the rules & regulations of the place & while staying was not very encouraging for me to stay with them again, the area near where we stayed was untidy, dirty and having no actual view from where I stayed I felt the he over-soled it, I ended up not staying the two nights I paid for, I only stayed the one night & looked for another place and decided to cut my loss with the retreat.....I definitely will not ever go there again

Worst possible stay
He is a very poor communicator. When we got there he was in the building but did not come out to talk to us. We had to talk to him on mobile. The accommodation is misrepresented on the website. There was no mention of the lack of parking. The rooms were filthy, dust on the surfaces and it stank of cigarette smoke. It was that bad that we arranged other accommodation and the gready guy refused to refund us any money. We are still happier that we did not stay here. Buyer beware
