I always discuss with new guests the limitations of the flat with regard to wheelchair users - we are on the ground floor and it is quite easy to access the flat and great for those with limited mobility to watch the passers by and boats etc in the bay - however we are not a disability flat, we have only standard width doors etc. and yes the bathroom is difficult for those who have no ability to walk but we have provided grab rails and the bathroom is large enough for a wheelchair to get into.
The previous guests advised us the microwave was broken and I immediately ordered another one. My caretaker provided one of his own for the guests to use so they would not suffer without one and when my new one arrived he replaced it at the next changeover so as not to disturb them. The keysafe was not known to be broken and when we checked it it was working properly but it has now been replaced for security.

As owners of Purbeck Cliffs Apartment we welcome comments and suggestions and have run the apartment very successfully for over 20 years. Each year we are visited by an independent Quality Assurance Assessor recognised by the Tourist Board to check the Apartment and we have consistently maintained our four star rating.
We were sorry this contributor did not enjoy her holiday, despite the beautiful weather they experienced. The comments about the pool were particularly unfair; the pool is kept heated to 81 degrees and above. It is checked at least twice a week and there is certainly no algae growing in it. It is unrealistic to promise to keep the pool totally insect free but we are always happy to give the pool an extra clean if requested.
Each year we redecorate and renew equipment and as part of this ongoing programme items such as the garden seats would clearly have been replaced, had this or some of the other points raised been brought to our attention at the time these would have been dealt with.
Purbeck Cliffs Apartment with its own private swimming pool and 2 acre garden presents outstanding value for money and compares very favourably with similar types of holiday where the swimming pool, sauna and snooker room are shared with other guests.
