"Lovely house and location"

We booked this for a mixed group of relatives (6) and used the main three bedrooms. The top floor is excellent , boutique style.....great bed, shower (no bath) and balcony with great views towards Da… More

Thank you for writing a review on Genista.
The property is large enough enabling an extended family plenty of room! The views from Kingswear and from this property are fantastic and something not to be missed.
We have mentioned to the cleaner about the issues raised in your review – they will be completing checks on the property after each clean, just to ensure spiders don't make themselves a home!
When you reported the broken toilet we did have the repair booked in for the following day – unfortunately our handy man was unable to gain access to the property as there was no key in the key safe, after he then knocked we can assume you didn't hear him knocking; he left and the only time he was then able to get in was the day before your departure.
At Blueriver Cottages we try to get any issues raised acted upon as soon as possible- unfortunately it was not managed this time.
We are really pleased you enjoyed your holiday and Genista and we hope you would stay again.
Best wishes The Blueriver Cottages Team.

Thank you for taking time to write a review for Genista. We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday, like you said it is a large property which has lots to offer a large group.
We were not aware of your daughter twisting her ankle, we hope she was alright.
We are sorry you were not happy with our services, as a team we are not here to accuse our guests, however we act upon reports from the cleaners and have to cover any damage costs and extra cleaning costs. Although, we have reimbursed you of these costs as a gesture of good will, so we hope you book with us again.
Thank you again for staying with Blueriver cottages and we hope you return to this fantastic property.
Best wishes The Blueriver team
