I'm sorry you had some problems. I'll mention the cleaning omissions to my cleaner, though I worry she may have been rather short of time turning around the aparment - normally she has six hours between guests as the standard check in time is 1600, but you wished to gain entry at 1200 giving her only two hours to clean.
I spoke to you on the day you checked in, about 1500, about the roof work and can only offer my apologies again as this has been work outside my control and just two days before your arrival I expected the work to be complete. I had hoped the 50% refund for the affected night compensated for this. In the kitchen there are 8 matching plates and 8 matching bowls, and a large number of mugs, which I hope is sufficient for a two bedroom apartment. Various odd items suchas the sauces are supplied as they can be of use during cooking to supplement full sets.
Fantastic 3 bedroom cottage (sleeps 8) in the heart of Cowes, minutes from the marina, shops, restaurants, bars and high speed ferry. Great for families or groups of friends. Please ask about RedFunnel ferry bookings. No pets or smokers please. …see more
