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.
We have visited Dannah Farm many times and always look forward to returning. We have never been disappointed. The price does mean that this is a treat and we cannot visit as often as we would like, but it is worth every penny. We stayed in the Granary Suite for the first time and would recommend it to anyone. We were welcomed with tea and beautiful cakes and enjoyed the wonderful platter on our first evening rather than going out to eat. The hot tub is fabulous as was the large comfortable bed. We were lucky to have good weather and were able to sit outside. Joan recommended places to eat and a taxi company, both of which were very good. This is not a hotel, we didn't want to stay in a hotel, this is a fabulous bed and breakfast and we love it. Perfect for getting away from it all in luxury. Thank you, we hope to see you again before too long.
