Guest Book

We have been offering accommodation to guests since 1986 – a lifetime – and the hardest lesson we have had to learn is that it is simply not possible to please everyone all the time, or indeed have a fully functioning Dannah Farm perfect at all times on every occasion. Most of our wonderful guests know this and generously forgive our lapses! We really, genuinely, do try our very best to please and hopefully are able to give our guests a wonderful stay with memories to cherish.
Reviews are both terrific and terrifying at the same time! It’s a heart stopping moment when we see a new review has been published – did they like us – were we helpful/friendly/in the middle of a domestic???? Then - having made the decision to put reviews on our own website – should we just put on the good ones – include the not so good – banish the awful?? The decision is taken – we will go for “the good, the bad and the ugly” and let our guests – past, present and future decide for themselves!!!!
We have decided not to reply to individual reviews, believing it could be perceived as confrontational, of course we read them all, and really do welcome your thoughts, taking  notice of all the points you raise – good and bad! (For some of the issues which raise their head from time to time, e.g., charges for corkage an explanation can be found on our FAQ's page).
And finally, a heartfelt thank you to those who take the time and trouble to tell us what a lovely time they had, along with a genuine apology to those for whom the experience was not all they would have hoped for.

hi i stayed in the red room 12th september 2012 for 2 nights and 1 day in spa cabin for my 1 year wedding anniversary. on my arrival i was greeted by a young lady and oldish man i was shown to my room by the lady who refused to carry my bags up the stairs with me being 4 months pregnant and carrying my 5 month old son in my arms i was not able to my husband was on hand to juggle all our belongings....
as i open door to the red room its look amazing stunning bed i felt like i was in heaven going into the bathroom it was alson stunning apart from cobwebs on right hand side to toilet and also broken tiles on wall with cerment filing it at the price of the room i would not exspect this!! it was alson brought to my attention that the bed frame was VERY!! dusty once again for the privce of the room this is not good.
dannah farm did provide a cot for my 5 month old son witch i had to assemble myself ... during the night i got upto check on my son he was very cold his hands and face tryed to put heating on radiators not warming up so i did use air con on heat but was very noisey so did not have much sleep that night then i was awoken 8am ish to barking dogs witch i later saw locked in the back of a van outside kitchen didnt not get to have breakfast this morning as lack of sleep due to air con and dogs !! second morning i was awoke by dogs again and cleaners cleaning oposite room did not get to have breakfast again.
