House a good size and convenient for store and hotel. Fresh, pretty decor.
Very disappointed to find broken cot on arrival. Fortunately arrived on early ferry so got it fixed.
Oil and electricity are usually included in cost. A certain amount of coal should certainly be included in cost.
All staff very nice and helpful.

This was our third time at Machrins. Our group comprised 7 adults and 5 children aged under 5. The size of the house meant we never felt crowded.
