I think you might be a very 'precious' young lady who thinks everything in life should be all about you. Good luck with that. Ann, my manager, is just superb and has my full support and the support of all our other guests, as her reviews fully testify. It's our policy to give 110% because we do genuinely care. We are a small business barely able to keep going but, despite that, we refuse to lower our standards. We believe that when you book a break away, you deserve it to be everything you hope. You are our first bad review and I mind that. You are impacting on our small business, run with the very best of ethics. You didn't contact us first and allow us to put right any grievance you may have. We would've gone out of our way to do so because we genuinely care that you have a good experience with us. If you would like to contact me again, perhaps I can leave you with a more positive experience of us.
