"Inadequate for 8 people"
A lack of sufficient cutlery, a continually collapsing bed, a slow-draining and dirty shower, and, eventually, a rather unpleasant owner all lead me not to recommend this accommodation.Some aspects we… More
More than adequate for 8 people!
We have already apologised to this guest for the problems he encountered and thanked him for appreciating the speed in which we overcame them.
Despite the holiday period.....the evening of Christmas Eve .... our maintenance employee dealt with the oven failure by replacing it with a back up oven which had been in storage. He offered to clean it but the holiday maker said that they would do it. There were no problems with the oven on check in it must be mentioned.
The so say "rotten single bed" is less than 1 year old with a slatted frame which must be assembled correctly. The holiday maker had moved the bed to a different position in the room perhaps causing problems with the slats. Our maintenance employee has reassembled the bed correctly and no further problems have been reported by more recent guests.
The day before this guest left we were told there were only 7 forks for 8 guests ....strangely our cleaner checked off the itinerary before the next guests and there were 8 matching forks there. We offered more from our on site storage and were told not to bother.
We could go on dealing with each point of this review, but were upset by the attitude and behaviour of this guest as were our staff and are sorry that he feels that the owner is "most unpleasant”. As only a couple of sentences, with smiles and good humour, passed between them during the whole stay, the owner thought this most odd and is upset by the comments. It is certainly not our intention to be unpleasant, as we and our maintenance and cleaning team make every effort to make our guests comfortable, as will be evidenced by previous reviews by our guests.

"Nice and big family house with added value"
The service was excellent, the owner triple checked everything was fine, also gave directions and a few tips to explore the area. The house itself is nice, tidy and spacious, and the owner goes out of his way to help the guests (welcome pack of basic food in case shop is not open, UK mobile phone in case you dont have one). So it actually goes over what you would normally expect.
