  • We had a lovely trip and a great stay in this property. It was great to be so close to kings road were we managed to do a lot of shopping and grab some lunch. The property itself was great. However we had a small problem with the toilet flush, which was sorted quickly after you sent a lovely man over to take a look. Thank You.
