  • "Stay at Waterford Manor"

    25 March 2013

    "Even though we received very friendly service at Waterford Manor, the accommodation was disappointing and not luxurious at all. The website indicated that each self-catering cottage has a DVD player, which was not the case. The TV is very old and small and the rooms are not tastefully decorated and it is not very private. We also did not have a view of the river."

    07 October 2009

    "The warm welcome we received on our arrival reminded us why we took the weekend away in the first place; to get away to a different scenery and relax in a different environment. The room was excellent, very cosy and had everything we needed including an electric blanket as the evening was very chilly. The breakfastwas scrumptious and the service from the owners very homey. We really enjoyed the place and would definitely visit the place again and refer family and friends. Thank you so much."

Sara was a very patient and accommodating hostess and she made the task of planning a weekend away for a big group a lot less stressful than it would have otherwise been. We had a great time and hope to be back in the not too distant future."
