"We enjoyed our holiday very much.
This is the third time we've rented CBH properties and each one has been well fitted out and to a high standard of cleanliness.
Our housekeeper Michelle on each of these occasions has been excellent, with any minor problems dealt with extremely professionally.
Re meals out ,lastyear we discovered the Lakeside cafe, near Tring and can thoroughly recommend it for breakfasts, coffee, cakes, light lunches and cream teas- their scones are tremendous!
We will be renting from CBH again next summer!"
“We had a great time in Carbis Bay at Riviera Apartments. The views were wonderful and will last in the memory. The rooms were all a good size and well fitted. The apartment was very clean and warm.”
