Great Location!
Great location, room a little tired and cramped, so make sure you confirm which room you’re booking. Housekeeping didn’t replace soap or other lotions once during 5 day visit.

A GREAT stay at Saffron
The accommodation is really nice, well situated and very convenient. The breakfast is well organized and we really enjoyed it. Definitely somewhere we will come to again. Well done!

Fair 4.0
My stay could have been the best.
I was so unhappy when they made me pay for a key that broke when I opened the gate when we got there. It was never my fault. The key must have been weak over time and it only broke when I opened. I would like to say they have lost a loyal client in me. I will never use their facility ever again.
