  • “The location of the house was perfect for our holiday and the general facilities were fine but there were a couple of issues.”

    When we arrived, just before 6pm, 3 of the 8 beds weren’t made up, but this was rectified by the cleaners within an hour or so after a quick phone call. We found that the ground floor bedroom was cold overnight which was surprising in August. The lounge only comfortably seated 6 people, and the house was set up for 8, a couple of our party were either sat on dining room chairs or on the floor. The cleanliness of the property wasn’t as you’d expect in the current climate. The seal at the bottom of the shower screen leaked and was green-so hadn’t been cleaned this year at least. You could also clearly see finger prints in the doors so they also hadn’t been properly cleaned. As we couldn’t get access to the house before 5pm we expected the house to be spotless. Having said that, we had an enjoyable stay.
