    The double bed in our room was comfortable but my child was unable to sleep in the single bed, as it was very uncomfortable and you could feel the springs in the mattress as you lay on it. Also the lady in charge of the the accomodation appeared very suspicious of who was staying in our room. She appeared to be always watching us and queried my children about how many were actually staying in our room. She also was very insulting by saying that she saw an "elderly couple" enter our room in the morning . This was me and my children's music teacher who had come to give my children a lesson before their competition. She didn't apologise for insulting me . I certainly am not elderly!!! I felt very upset by these comments and I have never been insulted like that before. I also had to pay €240 for my room at reception before I even saw the room. She also asked me if I had a different daughter with me when my daughter came to stay on the second night. I just had my son staying on the first night even though I paid for 3 people. She seemed to be thinking that I had a few girls staying. I have 1 daughter and had nobody extra staying in my room at any time and I don't know why the hostess was acting so suspicious. I would not recommend this accomodation to anyone else.

    The Briers was not the break we expected. Having recieved great reviews online we were really looking forward to our stay. However, the property was down at heel to say the least. Our room was a mismash of outdated furniture and not the cleanest. The owner had an odd manner which did not make us feel very welcome. One hundred pounds a night was very steep for what we got. We won't be back.
