Staff were welcoming but we found the accommodation tired and in need of maintenance. The bathroom in particular had a rusty shower pole, dirty curtain and the sliding door wouldn't work and the timber pelmet fell off. Towels in need of replacement.
The upstairs room was noisy as exposed thatch and no internal boarding.
Separate garden area not attractive and in need of some attention esp the large tree.
Communal areas okay but very dark and in need of updating.
Good breakfast. Nice pool.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with family

GOOD MORNING

I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay.
We have had a very busy year and maintenance was not done in time. Especially the family room you stayed in. No excuse but we are working hard now to catch up with maintenance.
We are closing for 3 weeks to do all the maintenance needed.
I apologies again, and hope we will see you again so you can have a relaxing enjoyable stay with us

Kind regards

HARRIE

I think this is a quirky B&B rather than a 4star lodge. Our room was a reasonable size but in need of some updating. We felt it was not as clean as it might have been. Breakfast was OK. The owners are enthusiastic and offer good local knowledge

gOOD AFTERNOON

Thank you for your review.
I see what you say about maintenance, we have had a very busy year and only now we are getting a bit quieter. So now it is our time to do some maintenance like painting and fixing . Specially in your room also the carpet will be replaced.

We hope that you will visit is in the near future so you can see the improvements

Kind regards

The room was pretty big (the bathroom was very big) but, as another reviewer mentioned, the safe was not working.....this is symptomatic of a establishment that could do with a bit of "TLC" / make over and if this was undertaken then it would really be a very nice place to stay at. The owner and staff were all very helpful, the breakfasts were excellent and there's off-road parking - oh, and an honesty bar (not seen too often these days so congratulations for that initiative).

Good morning

I do apologies for the broken safe, this has been replaced.
I am happy that you enjoyed your stay. we really do our best to make sure everyone have a great time.
After a long and busy season our place still looks good, but next month when we get a bit time we will do some maintenance to make the place spotless again .
Hope to see you again soon

St Francis is a lovely town.

Room was ok - bathroom really big. Safe didn't work and we were not massively enthralled by the place. Only stayed there for one night - happy to leave when we did. Good fo a short one night stop over but not much else.

Lovely comfortable warm place, nice to sleep under the thatched roof, lots of character, huge beautiful bathroom. Very quiet. Warm welcome. Had everything you need. Excellent breakfast with choice of various warm dishes, but also the usual fresh fruit salad, yoghurt and granola.

Room Tip: Our room faced out to a little terrace and the golfcourse. didn't look at the other rooms. but there were no real views anyway I think
