Verified reviewexcellent

I recently stayed at Taurus Place for nearly 2 weeks and found it a truly lovely, peaceful and convenient location for my needs. The cottage was clean, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed. I regretted not taking advantage of the tranquil, enclosed patio and pool, as the weather was quite warm for this time of year. Bridget was truly patient, informative and generous with her time, particularly when I required her assistance with a professional issue that arose unexpectedly. I unreservedly recommend Taurus Place, and personally hope to return.

My recent stay at Taurus Place was an absolute delight. I couldn't have wished for more with regards to such quiet, comfortable, secure and central accommodation. I felt so at home. The hostess was very helpful, accommodating, pleasant and very willing to and attended to all my needs in every way. She was delightful. I can highly recommend this accommodation in every way.
