My wife and I stayed for 2nights deciding to try ‘Beds on Board’ for the first time. What a very pleasant surprise. The Pod is magnificent. Beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need. Teresa should be congratulated on her attention to detail and should be hired as a Consultant by any hotel group to teach them how you should really do it. We cannot recommend Teresa and the Pod highly enough. You will not be disappointed.
