Thank you for setting out your comments on trip advisor – we take all comments posted very seriously and hope to learn from your stay with us to help in the running of our lodge for future holiday makers.
You are correct we do not allow dogs in our lodge and I am concerned to learn that you thought you could smell wet dog on arrival – I wish you had let me know at the time as I would certainly have despatched the housekeeper down to sort out any problem immediately. I have spoken to her today and asked her to make sure that the lodge is vented as fully as possible on future turn around days just in case someone leaving on the day that a new guest arrives has taken advantage of a last minute dip in the hot tub and has had wet towels lying around just before leaving – we do have a dehumidifier for the housekeeper to use on turnaround days and I will make sure that she takes extra special care to use it on future tight turnaround days .
Thank you for letting me know about the hob light I will let maintenance know to check that this week.
I have spoken to Kevin who manages the hot tubs on site and he assures me that your hot tub was checked daily and chemicals added when needed . He does try to check hot tubs to least disturb guests ie will not ask you to get out if hot tub already in use but will return later – it may be that you were out at the time he called to check the water. He said that the hot tub at Lodge 46 ran well during the week of your stay without any reported problems.
I shall have a look at the settees when I am down next week – when I last visited in June they were fine but I shall check next week and if there are problems with the springs then will make a decision as to whether to replace them. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Likewise we will check the mattress on the main double bed and I will attempt to remove the crayon marks that you have reported in the base of the bath – I can’t imagine why children were crayoning in the bath always a surprise what people let children do when on holidays!
I am glad that the site were able to recalibrate your leisure passes for you to be able to continue to use the leisure facilities. I have notified reception today of the problem that you had last week encountering a nail in the sauna – they are sending down someone to look at this straight the way today as this is the first that has been reported to them and obviously important to remedy to ensure that no one else comes across it.
We have had lots of guests staying in Valley Lodge 46 who have all had very good holidays down at Honicombe and I am sorry that you felt the lodge disappointed on this occassion. We have always responded quickly to guests requests for maintenance but as this is the first that I have heard from you I apologise that I could not therefore rectify anything during the course of your stay.

We have read your review with dismay. Following a summer of successful lets pre and post your visit we were naturally devastated by your comments made after your holiday and decided to pop down to the lodges to investigate for ourselves. We do not allow pets so I am not sure what the wet dog smell was that you were referring to and certainly on our revisit we were not met by any unwelcome smells. The site housekeeper herself had cleaned the lodge prior to your visit along with several other cleaners and she is adamant that it was cleaned thoroughly. If you had telephoned us with your complaints at the time of your arrival instead of following your departure we would certainly have made sure that everything was to your satisfaction. We understand that you turned the cleaners away after having complained that the lodge was dirty , your review states that you spent 3 hours cleaning the lodge to your satisfaction and yet you waited until the Monday evening at 9.10pm following your arrival on the Saturday and use of the lodge by your family for 2 full days prior to your taking photos of 2 pieces of spaghetti in the cutlery drawer to complain about. We are at a loss to know why you refused to give the cleaners access to address your complaints.
The hot tub had been drained, cleaned and refilled prior to your arrival and was checked daily during your stay, and the hot tub staff confirm that chemicals were added to adjust the water following your use of the hot tub to maintain the water.
The fridge and freezer door were misaligned – not at all how we left them at the start of the summer – the fridge had been pushed back with heavy handling and we were able to pull it forward slightly to realign the doors – thank you for pointing this out to us. Both the fridge and freezer were fully operational. We could not find fault with the door to the TV unit – it appears that you put this back together again after taking the photo. The bedroom door has dropped slightly and after the summer season this will be rehung – fortunately it did still close and lock.
The heating system is a brand new heating system – for it to operate you needed to turn it on. If you had telephoned, again we could have talked you through how to turn it on at the controls on the kitchen wall – the heating was not left turned on as you were staying at the lodge in the height of summer in August but you would have been more than welcome to use it – I appreciate that it is sometimes difficult operating machines, heating systems etc that you are not used to but we were at the end of the phone if you needed to contact us with any queries. There were also 2 freestanding plug in heaters in the downstairs for you to use .
Thank you for pointing out that the extractor fan light was not working – we will get this replaced. We noted that all hob lights were working. We were also glad that you were able to get the spare leisure passes recalibrated at reception to give you extra passes to the leisure centre extra to the fob on your main keys.
We alerted the site to your complaint about a nail in the sauna and they have sent maintenance staff down to investigate– I gather that you did not complain about this to anyone at the time of your visit to ensure the safety of others.
Yes there were 2 stains on the carpets that the cleaners could not get removed prior to your visit – we review the décor on an annual basis and have decided to replace the carpets and settees in both of our lodges along with some of the curtains to give a more up to date look for the next season of letting.
