Thank you for making everything was so seamless for our last minute break away - we really enjoyed our stay at the Shambles and we were really impressed with the personal service from igloo. We loved that we could find all the information about the property and our stay on your welcome email before we even set out on the road and that Erin still checked in to see if there was anything else she could help with - it really did make our stay perfect. The extra welcome touches were also so appreciated, thank you! We will definitely be booking with you again soon!
