Interaction with guests
We like to leave people to enjoy their holidays in peace and get away from it all. For that reason we don't tend to bother you during your stay. However we are generally around to answer any queries you might have or offer any assistance needed – or leave a manager in place if we are away. We send an extensive information pack in advance of your stay and have guest information files at the properties. We are always at the end of a phone line or an email if you have any more specific requests as well.
