We didn't expect a palace for a relatively low price holiday rental in high summer, but did expect reasonable consideration of guests comfort. Cobwebs everywhere, trim hanging off of one window, … More

Owner response - Thank you for your feedback. I was very sorry to hear you had issues with your stay at Northlands chalet 1. We do take any complaints very seriously and would like to try and address these here.

Firstly, your issue with directions: I have checked my records and I can confirm that I had indeed sent you directions via email and as a back up, you may recall that I sent you my house managers phone number as I was on holiday myself during your arrival.

We do apologise for the issue you had with a piece of the window trim that had come away which we could have quickly rectified for you had you given us that opportunity.

In terms of hanging storage space, in chalet 1 we provide a facility (with coat hangers) for up to 10 items. We will review this space following your feedback.

In terms of your concerns about fire precautions, please rest assured that all our properties have been approved by a certified fire inspector and, as such, have all the necessary certificates. Our properties all contain approved fire extinguishers and fire detector equipment.

With regards to shower drainage we have checked this but cannot replicate the issue you had. The drainage is slightly slower than usual but certainly doesn't present a problem with operation or flooding.

You mentioned a problem with room temperature. July 2014 was an extraordinarily hot month in England and, as a result, we had taken the steps to install cooling fans as the properties do not have air conditioning. I'm sorry these still didn't manage to cool you to a comfortable level.

Finally, although I strongly disagree with your comment "cobwebs everywhere" we also took a look at this and as a result, will be taking this up with our cleaning staff as we did find some cobwebs on two of the window frames.

Thank you again for your valuable feedback and assuring you of our best intentions.
