Firstly I would like to say how hurt I was with the comment that has been left by this very unkind person. I have been letting the property for the past five years and this is the first bad comment we have had. We have numerous guests that return every year and sometimes twice a year.
I would like to address the comments that have been made Firstly the person arrived and without speaking to us about any concerns, left for a few hours and returned asking for their money back. Yes there was A cobweb in the bedroom that was missed, but there was no mess under the toilet seat, no food or stains in the kitchen or dirt on the floor. There was however stains on the upholstery of the dining chairs which could only be removed by reupholstering them (which we have now done). There was a SMALL stain on the back wall of the wardrobe which has now been treated.
I do agree with them that this is not a five star property, but it was never marketed as one. It is one of the lower priced properties on Holiday Lettings and is CLEAN, TIDY and COMFORTABLE, set in a rural position, with easy access to lots of wonderful tourist attractions. I can suggest as I did to this person, that if you are looking for luxury, then it may be worth choosing one of the higher priced properties on Holiday Lettings.
There is no reason this property should not be let as a holiday let. I have a guest book FULL of lovely comments from happy guests who have enjoyed their stay so much that they felt the need to write comments in the book.
These people actually had the key and it was them that did not want to return into the property to show us what was wrong with it (obviously because there was nothing to show us, and they had already booked another property).
I gained legal advice, and was told NOT to refund any money to these people. HOWEVER as a gesture of good will, I refunded half of their holiday cost, as I was upset that they were not happy with the accommodation.
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK AT THE PHOTOS ABOVE TO SEE WHAT THE PROPERTY IS LIKE, AND IF NEED BE I HAVE PAST GUESTS THAT WOULD BE HAPPY TO VERIFY THAT THIS IS A LOVELY PLACE TO STAY.
