          As you are aware we spent some time at Ann's Villa during March 2016 but I cannot describe how disappionted I was. If I ownded the place I would not invite anyone to stay. It is a disgrace. You are confrunted on arrival by a man who states he is the "Manager" but I wonder if he knows the meaning of the word. The uppersheet on our bok was, in fact, a duvet cover. The walls looked as though they were falling down. the repairs to our room, in particular, was patchy, to say the least. If you rate your B+Bs then I would rate this particular one as -10.Establishments response:It is most unfortunate...
