  • “Having spoken to Erica before our visit to get the keycode information there was no warmth in her voice or welcome, she barked orders down the phone about the house and then said goodbye without so much as have a lovely holiday.”

    On Friday evening arrival we found the 5th bedroom locked, when we contacted Erica she was extremely abrupt in her response and told us that as we were a family of six she had locked the 5th room! We had booked a 5 bedroom place only to find it was 4, (false advertising) when we queried this Erica told us to convert the living room into a 5th bedroom if that's what we wanted!

    On Friday evening arrival we found the 5th bedroom locked, when we contacted Erica she was extremely abrupt in her response and told us that as we were a family of six she had locked the 5th room! We had booked a 5 bedroom place only to find it was 4, (false advertising) when we queried this Erica told us to convert the living room into a 5th bedroom if that's what we wanted! We had booked the house for its 5 bedrooms not 4 bedrooms and a sofa bed, she then went on to tell us to take it up with Skye's! On meeting Erica the following day when she came to check the hot tub there was no introduction by herself as to who she was or any exchange if we were having a nice time a total lack of hospitality to our family. Erica was also exceptionally rude in telling us we should be grateful as we had got the house at a discount price, I found this totally uncalled for and actually 2.5k is not a small amount to pay for a weeks holiday especially in the current climate. The house was not covid secure and the grade 2 listing I can say was used to try and excuse this. There was no hand sanitizer provided, the very basic welcome pack looked like it had never been cleaned down. The cutlery and crockery was filthy and we had to wash it all before use and we had no information on which bin required which type of rubbish. The location of the house saved the sour taste that our horrible welcome had left. The Forest of Dean is amazing and the children loved all the bike trails in the forest.If you love biking and walking this location is fantastic. Just beware of the horrible host!
