"Power kept tripping, we lost track of how many times!!"
Stayed for long weekend with 6 girl friends. Accommodation itself is perfect, easy to find, beautiful location, very modern and fitted out well. The heating hadn't been put on early enough, so it took a while to warm up and then it was difficult to regulate and some rooms felt cold all through the weekend. A portable thermostat was discovered whilst packing to leave, if only this hadn't been brought to our attention initially.The fuse board tripped all weekend and each time we had to wait for the owner (a working farmer) to come and rectify. He was apologetic and explained he was getting someone out Monday to rectify the situation, but from reading the guest book it became apparent we weren't the first to experience this issue. Our food was not being stored correctly all weekend and we would have had to waste much of it as it (the fridge /freezer) was off more than it was on. If we had arrived for a week with all our groceries, we would have had a big problem. Hot tub was great but could do with a good clean and some maintenance as "bits" kept floating by!!The shelves in the oven extended which meant they also retracts, not idea when you have hot food balanced. Accident waiting to happen here!! We've stayed in a variety of places in the past and tend to make the most of what we've got and carry on regardless, which is probably a good job, as it could have ruined our weekend. Stayed in cheaper less upmarket places and not had issues like these. A shame as very friendly and saw a lamb born that day! Still wouldn't recommend though :-(
We are deeply sorry to hear of your experience. We strive to ensure that every single customer enjoys their stay with us.
We always ensure the heating is on when guests arrive however in this instance there was a genuine misunderstanding and miscommunication . I thought my husband had turned it on and he thought I had done it. This was completely our fault and we apologise for that. We did ensure it came on right away as soon as we realised our mistake. We have also amended our information pack at the property to ensure that guests are made aware of how to control the heating via the portable thermostat.
The hot tub is thoroughly cleaned after every stay and serviced on a regular basis by a professional with the proper filter systems in place. We do always ask that guests do not walk barefoot on the garden and then jump straight into the hot tub as this can bring dirty and mud into the water.
The electric problem was a one off and due to a faulty switch. That was replaced at the first available opportunity we had. I can understand your frustration with the 'tripping' of the electric but this has now been resolved.
There are temporary cooker shelves in the oven at the moment. We had ordered replacements but unfortunately they did not arrive in time for your stay. These have since been replaced.
Once again I'm very sorry for the problems you experienced during your stay and understand your frustrations. Since the Lodge was built we have had many guests and all have given excellent feedback in our guest book. The customer experience is key to us and we will continue to improve to ensure that instances like this do not happen again.
