  • "Nettie's View could do with a really deep clean."

    Place is full of cobwebs. On arrival at 9:30pm after travelling 6 hours, there was no toilet roll in the property. One single roll left to use would've been nice. We went out to the local Morrisons which was luckily open. After doing a complete shop for Christmas, we got back again to discover the fridge absolutely stank, like food had been left in there for a while to go rotten. Now, this was at this point 11:30pm. Luckily we bought some cleaning spray in Morrisons so we could give the fridge a good clean before unloading our costly Christmas shop with fresh turkey, lamb and beef. Even after cleaning the fridge, the revolting smell remained all week. The property lacked a lot of basics, a few bin bags / washing up liquid / cloths would've been good. Also was only ONE tea towel for drying up dishes. The furnishings and fittings especially upstairs were very basic. The property doesn't feel homely at all, very unwelcoming. It could really do with a redecorate in some rooms. This was supposed to be a nice break for a memorable Christmas with our two kids and also - we brang my 72 year old mum who had recently diagnosed with dementia. Felt very deflated. We all found the beds uncomfortable too.

  • "Amble is a fantastic place & so friendly."

    We booked this property last minute, mainly due to its location, the fact we could take our dogs & it was a decent price. Overall everything was good. The on street parking was fine, the property was larger than we thought it would be, it was nice and warm & the facilities were very good. But there were a couple of minuses too. The back yard could do with a decent power wash & a bit of love, and the foot pedal on the kitchen bin didn't work, so we had to lift the bin lid manually - only minor points but quite unhygienic. If you aren't intending to use the yard, & aren't too concerned about the bin, then this property is ideal for a family holiday as it's large, comfortable & near the facilities.

    Thank you for letting me know about the kitchen bin. It’s now been fixed. And the back yard has been jet washed. Property Owner

  • "This is a really lovely, spacious house in a great location in Amble."

    The downstairs is very comfortable and homely, the kitchen well-equipped, although the dishwasher was out of use and due to be replaced the day we left. As others have said, the yard is neglected and unusable; the house could do with a deep clean; the sink and shower drain unblocked in the bathroom; the vinyl floors in the kitchen and bathroom replaced and a bigger bed in the main bedroom. However the house was warm, well-equipped, spacious yet cosy and we enjoyed our stay.

    Apologies for the delay in getting the dishwasher fixed so that you didn’t have use of it during your stay. The yard has been jet washed and we will keep a closer eye on it next year. Property Owner

  • "Spacious house."

    Comfy bed and sofas. Nice towells in bathroom. Plenty of on street parking. This property needs some improvements. House in need of decorating and refurbishment. Whole of house looking tired and was quite dirty. Dishwasher broken. Seems to be a long standing problem reading previous reviews. Can't unlock kitchen windows as no keys available. Shower in bathroom drains so slowly you end up standing in a puddle of soapy water. Back yard unsightly. Could do with a good tidy up. Back gate needs repairing.

    That you for bringing the cleaning issues to my attention, this has been addressed. The dishwasher has been replaced and the back yard has been jet washed. The window key is now on a keyring on the hook by the back door. Back gate has been replaced. Property Owner

  • "We stayed last year and had to call someone out about the dishwasher."

    The rubber seal had came off. Disappointingly it is still the same. I think everyone staying has said the same thing in that the owner is missing a trick with the yard as it let's the cottage down as it could be updated with furniture to sit in. It just looks a mess!! Other than that the cottage was spotless and an excellent base for our holiday.

    The dishwasher has now been replaced! The back yard has been jet washed and there is outside furniture in the cupboard under the stairs. Property Owner

    ..I forgot to mention no wardrobes in any rooms and the double bed is tiny and needs upgraded to king-size or large double

    Thank you for the feedback. The back gate has now been replaced. There is a new dishwasher. The window key has been put on the hook by the back door. We have also replaced the mop. Property Owner

  • "This could be an amazing property."

    Lots of space, lovely decor and very comfy bed. It would be good if there were table and chairs in the yard to be able to enjoy the outside space. It was also impossible to re-bolt the gate after putting out the rubbish so had to wedge it shut. Lack of attention to detail (cobwebs on landing ceiling) and economies on smaller items (no washing up liquid) detracted from overall impression. Despite this being one of the more expensive properties we have stayed at in Amble it is the first time ever that there wasn't a welcome pack, not even a few teabags and pint of milk to make a hot drink on arrival. Several of the above comments had already been made in the visitor guest book over recent months, but had not been addressed.

  • "Nice spacious cottage in a quiet area but close to harbour, pubs restaurants etc."

    Good parking. Good smart TV. With a little tlc the cottage could be really elevated. Yard is scruffy and needs attention. Kitchen floor is worn through in one area. Shower needs a good clean and shower tray fills up when you shower. Little things really, and didn't spoil our stay but cleaning and maintenance need attention.

  • "Many positives, we enjoyed our stay, the place is very spacious, peaceful, and the lounge is comfortable, the wifi worked well."

    Amble itself is lovely and we were very pleased with the location. The thing that lets it down a bit is the back yard, as the previous reviewer noted, it is covered in algae and bits of insulation and grub. It was very slippy, I nearly went flying taking the rubbish out. A missed opportunity as it would be a nice little suntrap there. Couple of additional things that would have been nice too; some spare hand soap (the bottles that were there was pretty much run out, we bought some and left it for the next visitors), a starter pack for the fire and a hairdryer. Overall though the positives outweighed the negatives and we had a great time.

  • "The house was warm and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay."

    The following comments are not complaints but things we feel would improve the stay. There are no window keys and some of the windows are locked. This could be a serious safety issue in the event of a fire. There are no recycling bins in the kitchen so it’s not easy to recycle waste. The knives all need sharpened and there is no knife sharpener. The USB plugs in the kitchen do not work. The accuracy of back yard, patio furniture and bike storage is incorrect. The yard is covered in algae and bits of insulation. There is no table and there is no bike storage. It would be nice to have a starter pack of wood for the fire. Also there are tiny amounts of watered down hand wash in the kitchen and bathroom
