"great bed, but many irritants"
Couole Management team, wife very nice but the main bug bear her husband- put me off the accomodation that I would never recommend it to anyone.Rang me in middle of work time to highlight I must arri… More
Last minute booking, unfortunately. Advised the client to book through Holiday Lettings; said she would like it cheaper, and would pay cash on arrival.Telephoned me from railway station one hour after arrival time given, to state no taxis were available [rather strange!] so I drove to the station to collect her. We did offer possibility of paying by bank transfer, which was declined. We met the following day when we were told she only had approximately half the rental fee. The following day we had to arrange to meet again for the balance. As stated in the review, the lady went outside to smoke at 9.55 a.m. Shortly before 10 a.m.[ her preferred check out time], I asked if the Invoice, which she asked me not to date was suitable for her, and to return the £ 200.00 cheque bond.
Fortunately, as she was going down the stairs, we noticed the keys were missing, and managed to reclaim them.
Rest assured, we tried our best to be helpful,[ see all other reviews] as always;and are somewhat bemused by this review; but not surprised!
