  • "On arrival at Mallards we were very disappointed to see that it hadn't been cleaned properly ie th oven and grill were very greasy, the toaster was full of crumbs and hadn't been cleaned at all ,the seal inside the fridge was full of black mould spots all the floors were very streaky, in the main bedroom there was a prescription from the previous occupant, and to cap it all the batteries in the remote control had leaked making it inoperable."

    We phoned the number on the information leaflet only for it to go direct to voice mail. Sometime later we received a call from Victoria who informed us that the person we rang hadn't worked for the owner for over 12 months. Victoria came to the bungalow later and apologised but we said it certainly wasn't acceptable and requested a partial refund she told us she would be in touch with her mother the owner upto now we have heard nothing , we trust you will give this matter your urgent attention looking forward to hearing from you soon Keith and Marion Lawson.

  • "Mallards had everything you needed for a relaxing and comfortable holiday."

    Lots of little details that you don't normally get in a holiday home. Would definately recommend and hopefully return again.

  • "This property is located on a private estate of about 50 lodges off the B3254, separate from - but adjacent to, the Rosecraddoc Manor estate."

    The location of this accommodation is key - if we had stayed at an accommodation in either North or South coastal areas we would probably not have bothered to visit the other area - or Bodmin Moor (Golitha Falls) and therefore would have not enjoyed the holiday as much. Coastal properties can be more expensive to rent than inland but this place was cheaper and offered us more variety and options. The photos of the accommodation were a little deceiving - typical estate agent style photos with a wide angle lens so initially we were disappointed with the size BUT it quickly grew on us and we found it to be very cosy. Plenty of equipment was available in the accommodation but WiFi was virtually non-existent so we had to rely on 4G. Good clear communication from the owner regards key collection etc. Unfortunately due to the time of year and COVID the Village Inn wasn't open but there are some very nice pubs (Crows Nest) nearby with great food and a log fire.

    The accommodation was spotless and far exceeded our expectations the location was what I wanted 20 mins to looe beach and polperro , we even got the little chain ferry over to fowey I don't mind driving in Cornwall and a 40 min drive to Watergate bay we did twice perfect surfing The site was well looked after shame the pub was closed but it didn't spoil the holiday liskeard being 5 mins away was ideal for stocking up on food Morrison's, Aldi , I even found a coffee machine in the cupboard lavattza's all round excellent, We all would stay there again thanks Val and Bill for a wonderful stay Richard Southampton,

    The cottage was not clean when we arrived toaster was dirty also had to clean the fridge it was cold not enough heating the pan of cottage was not the same as what was advertised

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that Mallards didn't meet your expectations on this occasion. If we or the owner had been made aware of you issues during your stay we could have arranged a re clean of the property for you, as you didn't make us aware until after your stay it is disappointing that we didn't get the opportunity to put it right to make your stay more enjoyable.
