    “Girls weekend”

    Booked this cottage via The Coniston Hall Hotel reception ...

    Booked this cottage via The Coniston Hall Hotel reception. The reception were casual to say the least about my booking,the didn't send me confirmation of the payment for deposit and balance payment despite it being well over £ 1200 . Nice property ,well equipped kitchen. Plenty of crockery & cutlery. On arrival we were taken to The Thack by staff from the hotel and when we mentioned the lack of seating,he said that no one had EVER mentioned the number of seats before,and that nothing could be done about it anyway ! The lounge only had comfy seating for 6 people ! Some of our party had to sit on bean bags on the floor....we are 8 women of a certain age and found that quite challenging. He did say that people who rent don't normally all sit in the same room all together ? I dread to think how we could have coped if there were 10 of us it the property. We nearly brought some of the wooden garden furniture in to sit on but decide not to! There was a spare armchair in one of the bedrooms but it would have been impossible for us to get it down the stairs. The doors to the bedrooms were quite difficult to keep closed ( gate type latches )as the floors were not very level and they kept swinging open. The upstairs bathroom at the end of the corridor the toilet was running the whole weekend ,so you could hear it in the bedrooms ( louder as the door kept swinging open ) Loved the hot tub and outside area, never been to this area before. Liked the area with friendly people and nice pubs and cafès Great weekend ....quiet and relaxing but if there are more than 6 of you check out the seating arrangements in the lounge !! Maybe mention this when making a booking .
