Enjoyed Most: Peace and quiet. Friendly sfaff
Daniel Oct 16, 2016 Stourport-on-Severn, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: The restaurant. The lake.
Other Comments: It was a little run down, the "apartments" are studios with just a frosted glass door diving the toilet from right next to the kitchen. The fire alarms are directly above the kitchen and go off every morning if you cook. The sofa was old and worn, it was a sofa bed so when you sat n it, you sank down the back and sat on the metal frame. We ended up sitting on the bed as was more comfy. The cosy lounge for kids was playing music with swearing!

Other Comments: Think it could cleaner. A lot of dust. Also if I'm staying 3 nights they should put extra shampoo etc It smelt of bleach on balcony. Also it was always wet?

Enjoyed Most: Yes a good location for us to explore. Also The staff were very good and were quick to attend to our complaints.
Other Comments: Rooms were not very clean on arrival. Asked for room close to car park and were given one right down the end. Short of cutlery and pots and pans didn't have a frying pan. Also complained about a mouse in the cupboard where the bin was and all they did was put a gadget over the hole which didn't do anything.
