I made a booking online quite late for the MGP, however the owner rang me within the hour to confirm details and requirements. I wasn't too sure what to expect as some reviews are mixed.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Santon either side of a 2 weeks stay in a holiday rental house. It's in a good location with good parking but the road noise does intrude on the bedrooms. The decor is very dated and the rooms are slightly shabby however they are clean. Our room was very cold even at the... More

Beds are small, mattress very used, soft and uncomfortable, bathroom old, sink and mirror displaced for kids height, no wall mount for shower head. No WiFi access in rooms, and data reception in the area is hidious..... More

Had very little contact with anyone once we were checked in, although they were polite when we did. Lovely continental breakfast delivered to room at your preferred time, and as we were leaving early, we had an 'overnight tray' delivered the night before we left for our breakfast on the last day. The room did indeed smell slightly 'musty' but... More

Rooms were very dated and smelled musty, had bugs, very noisy. Mattresses were of the cheapest quality and the sheets were not changed once over our 12 day stay. There are no phones, ice machine, food or beverage vending machines, no pubs or restaurants within walking distance. You are so far away only 1 take out place will deliver and... More
