  • "We had a wonderful stay at Marine Terrace."

    Would definitely love to stay at the house again. We had trouble working out how to heat the hot tub but the host came to sort it out very quickly! No issues, it was a lovely stay with a fantastic view.

  • "Good size accommodation and bedroom size for 8 of us."

    A great location for walking into town for the shops, bars and restaurants. The house was well presented and clean and had all the facilities we wanted. We met the owner who was very friendly and accommodating. The only negative was the WiFi packed up when 8 people tried to log onto it, otherwise a very enjoyable stay and would certainly recommend the property to others.

  • "Had a lovely Stay."

    Was a shame that we had a leak over the Dining Room table. Which we should of been inform off prior to our vist. I text the owner who replied that thinks it the up stairs shower room. But we would like to tell him via this feedback that it's the outside Terrace by the door were water collecks when it rain.Other than that its ideal were it is close to River and Shops. The unloading and loading was a bit of a pain as people park there During the Day. Would stay there again.

  • "Great location."

    Lovely house. We couldn’t get the stereo to work and found the first floor bed that we slept in very uncomfortable. Andrew replied quickly when we did contact him with questions. Overall we would recommend the house and would stay again.

  • "Attention needed to outside area."

    2nd floor outside seating area in need of a good clean, lots of long standing cobwebs & plant debris around. Hot tub area , again in need of good clean. Unable to use hot tub as very difficult to remove cover, no handles, very heavy plus in poor repair. Otherwise, the internal house facilities were excellent. House in a beautiful setting & close to all amenities. Be nice to have clearer instructions on using cooker & hobs . Would definately recommend it to others , was perfect for our 40th reunion of nurse training .

  • "The house was beautifully dressed and extremely comfortable."

    The accommodation was very close to all amenities and lovely to step out of the front door and be on the river path within metres. Clear information was provided about the accommodation prior to arrival and advice on local restaurants too. Would highly recommend a stay here.

  • "The location of the house was fantastic - so close to some great spots in Shrewsbury and in a beautiful setting along the river."

    The rooms were all fantastically done and comfortable and cosy, with plenty of space and bathrooms to share. The only slight downside was that the lounge area itself, tagged on to the kitchen, is not overly comfy if everyone is sat down there.

  • "The cottage was lovely but we were missing a towel and a sheet for the sofa bed."

    It also would've been useful to have soap in the bathrooms ( some of the group mentioned this.) Also after most of us consulting the hot tub manual we could NOT get it to bubble! It was hot but the Jets would not come on which actually defeated the idea of having a hot tub. I was asked by the group to contact someone for advice. It was very difficult to find a contact number. There didn't appear to be a phone number easily to hand. I did look through my emails and rang one number but couldn't get through so then I sent an email via a link. Again I didn't receive a reply, hence no proper hot tub use. So please could you tell me who and how we contacted someone when we were actually at the house itself. The house was indeed lovely and in a very convenient and pretty part of town. The kitchen was well equipped.

    Thank you for your feedback following your stay at Marine Terrace. For future guest information the bed linen for the Sofa Bed is stored inside the sofa bed - a sheet, mattress protector, duvet and four Pillows. The hot tub has a simplified instruction sheet on the notice board with a more detailed instruction book in the Instruction folder. If guests are unsure about anything then it is easy to contact us either calling, texting or email. All contact details are available on the notice board and our telephone number is provided in the pre-arrival key collection information provided by Sykes.

  • "The property itself was ideal for our purpose, spacious and ideal location, we ..."

    The property itself was ideal for our purpose, spacious and ideal location, we were disappointed that we could not use the facilities as described, the hot tub had been moved to a small area at the back of the property, the temperature was very hot and we were unable to turn it down, there was dirty scum on the bubbles that made it feel unhygienic, the patio doors to the terrace were locked with no key available for access, I messaged the owner who said it wasn't safe to use the terrace as he had removed the fence and that the hot tub was OK to use but we could clean it if we didn't like the dirt, I don't think the terrace or hot tub should be advertised if they are not available for use

    Thank you for your feedback following your stay at Marine Terrace. For future guest information the hot tub has been relocated from a first floor outside area to a ground floor outside area (due to some issues with neighbours) but the space and facilities remain the same. Apologies for any confusion we are due to update the photographs soon. As discussed with the guests at the time the hot tub water is fresh water however the chemicals react with the hard water to leave a residue which is filtered out or can be hurried along by skimming the surface. It was totally hygienic, with all chemical levels correct (including the chlorine). If any guests have any concerns, we are happy to visit the property to reassure them.

  • "Hot tub now downstairs so there's no area for sitting out now."

    (we weren't informed before we got there!). 1/No music as advertised. 2/Couldn't listen to any radio channels or watch TV downstairs without the programs distorting. 3/Not enough kitchen utensils to prepare a meal. 4/Half of the toaster not working. 5/Induction hob cut off during cooking a meal so we had to get a takeaway and throw away half cooked meal! To be fair Andrew did respond very quickly to attempt to put matters right. He called the next day when we were out and brought new utensils. He said there was nothing wrong with the toaster - there still is! He said there was nothing wrong with the TV - there is! He explained that if you get any oil on the hob it shuts down with the "over heat" symbol! True it does, but would have been nice to have been told that before and not AFTER the event. He didn't know what had happened to all the music files but they had indeed gone! I also had to repair a downlighter in the dining room that was fizzing and crackling (corrosion in the bulb holder) and also repair the window catch/lock in the bathroom so that it couldn't be opened from outside (Andrew said "who is going to be outside there trying to get in the property"! Doh, a burglar perhaps?) I didn't like his attitude when i spoke to him after he had been, he suggested these things hadn't happened! I had to say to him "I'm NOT making these things up and i'm NOT lying!" Apart from that we had a wonderful family holiday and the property is in an ideal situation for seeing the sights of Shrewsbury on foot. No free car parking is a major issue though. Costs a lot to park 3 cars for a week!

    Thank you for your feedback following your stay at Marine Terrace. For future guest information the property is fully equipped with plates, cups, cutlery, pots, pans and utensils, for cooking a meal for 10 people. However, if there is a particular item that's required we will do our best to supply it. All TVs are fully operational (downstairs has an Amazon Firestick enabled TV, whilst the bedrooms are Digital Freeview. All kitchen appliances are fully operational and have full instructions in a folder provided. If any guest is having any issues, then were are happy to visit them and replace or repair any faulty item. On this occasion we visited the property promptly with some extra wooden spoons, as requested). Car Parks, it is a town centre location and so not cheap,...We do however supply Guests with the option to use a cheaper parking permit and advise on where cars can be parked free of charge a little further away.

  • "Got to the house the hot tub worked for 15 mins then broke."

    The hot tub is not In the space it says it is on the web site and the pictures are wrong. on the first floor there is a outdoor area that was locked with no key so we could not use it. The owner came out but could not fix the hot tub as it was the electrics he thinks. No one came out to fix it The hole time we stayed there. We stayed in this house because it had a hot tub and it was for a hen weekend.so our weekend was a total letdown as the hen just wanted a relaxing weekend away with a hot tub. We are having to go down the legal root as we want to claim back some of the cost and the owner doesn't want to pay out any more than £13 each for apologies there was 7 of us there think that's shocking.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback about your stay at Marrine Terrace. We’re very sorry for the disruption caused by the failure of the hot tub during your stay. We did offer to attend the property immediately on the Friday evening but were told you were going out for the evening so we came early on the following day. Whilst we did everything within our control to resolve this it was unfortunately necessary to call an engineer, who regrettably wasn't able to attend before your departure on the Sunday morning. We're sorry that you thought the gesture of goodwill offered for this inconvenience was insufficient but similarly we believed the requested level of compensation was more than we could reasonably offer.

  • "Lovely house and ideal for our old girls reunion."

    NCP car park only £4 per day (St Julian’s Friars) and relatively close. Planning issues, particularly over the siting of the hot tub, have closed all access to the rear of the property. Is a hot tub such a crowd pleaser? The excellent small shops accessible across the nearby pedestrian bridge were a great asset to us. Large, modern kitchen with everything we needed, apart from a bread knife and egg cups. Comfortable beds and clean bathrooms/ shower rooms. A quiet location. Quick and easy access onto one of the main shopping streets (Wyle Cop) of the town.

  • "Had a very enjoyable week - lovely place to visit."

    The only downside was that the main bedroom (owl room) has an uncomfortable mattress - all other beds were reportedly very comfortable however they could do with some better quality pillows. The fridge and dishwasher were clean and functional but have obviously been mistreated in the past as the doors on both were a bit wonky. We couldn't get the speakers to function on the surround sound system and we couldn't find a remote control for the tv in the main bedroom. Hot tub was an amazing bonus but could do with instructions being laminated and left in the terrace area - or just even writing PTO on the instructions on the notice board in the kitchen - it was 4 days before we turned it over to see simple instructions. (We had found the full manual in a kitchen cupboard!) Arrival instructions say unloading at the rear is possible however we opened the garden gate to reveal a brick wall. We thought parking would be an issue but we managed to get 5 cars parked up on residential streets over the bridge and all were safe for the week - everything is within walking distance as long as you're fit and healthy (a few hills!!) so no need to have car nearby. All in all these are pretty picky points and I would rate it 8 out of 10 for somewhere to stay - if the above issues were sorted it would definitely be a 10!

    House is fabulous open plan living downstairs so great for parties. Showers are enormous but quite slippy so would advise taking a rubber mat if you have older guests with you. Hot tub is great but neighbours are quite twitchy about it and we had a note through the door after 1 hour when only 1 person had been in it!! Location is fab with great restaurants within 1 minute( the cornhouse and lion and pheasant). Overall a great rental tastefully decorated throughout with everything u need apart from a potato peeler ! Well worth the money. Also parking in belle vue is free on the side roads and only a short walk back over the footbridge .
