    One picture made it look like 2 sofas in living room which we prefer but only 1. Not sure if furniture has been changed or Way picture was taken No welcome pack privided( first time ever in holiday we have booked with you) Description says shower over bath which is true but doesn’t state that you can’t stand up in bath to use shower. You have to sit in the bath (which wasn’t a full size bath). Had we taken my elderly parents with us they would not have been able to have a shower for 7 days. Only 3 teaspoons provided in kitchen No baking trays provided for cooking and no other dishes suitable for oven (this was a self catering property and as such these are basics). Dishwasher provided but only 4 dishwasher tablets for 4 days. Washing machine provided but no washing powder/liquid, etc. In all your other properties we have stayed if equipment like this is provided so are the items needed to use them. If coach house owners not providing these things it should’ve put in description then things can be brought from home rather than having to go out and buy them Towels in bathroom very small and very rough/hard. Have been used/washed so many times no writing left on labels. Need replacing. Hand towels, bath towels and bath mat all different colours - felt like they were just things owners had finished with themselves rather than something for guests. Definitely not the same standard as other 4 tick/star properties we have booked through you (we only use your company for holidays in this country and found this property was inferior to all the others we hVe stayed in with the same rating). Lots of little things missing which overall spoilt the whole experience
