Verified reviewexcellent

This was our third stay at Squirrels Way and once again it was wonderful - We stayed in cottage 2 and as usual it was immaculately clean and we were looked after very well by Ann and Constance. The security here is very good and we always feel very safe and secure - It is also very close to all amenities - It is within walking distance to the sports stadiums Rugby/Cricket which is great for us as we usually come to watch the cricket. We are already looking forward to our next visit in the not too distant future. Pauline & Tony Bird

This was our 3rd stay at Squirrels Way and as usual on arrival the cottage was immaculately clean and tidy, We were met by Ann who is always ready to answer any questions or solve any problems should you have any - We didn't. We stay in cottage 2 which is like a home from home - Fully equipped kitchen, Bathroom, Bedroom and lounge. There is a small swimming pool that backs on to the kitchen which is shared by the 3 cottages, If you do like the sun as my husband and I do the pool is perfect to cool off in. The location is perfect if you like cricket or rugby as both stadiums are within walking distance - You are also within a short drive of the V & A Waterfront, There are supermarkets and some restaurants within a 5 minute drive of the cottage. All 3 cottages have very good security we have always felt very safe and secure, I can think of nothing but positive things to say about squirrels way and we are already looking forward to our next visit. Finally we would like to thank Constance she is the lovely lady who comes in most days to tidy, Change beds, Hover etc.
