The above review was disappointing to receive for a number of reasons. The property represents excellent value, given it's size, the modern facilities, and a heated pool. While I agree the swing set wasn’t available, all other facilities as advertised were in the property, and were in perfect working order.
The suggestion that our “attitude” was that the property was fine for family and friends and so should be Ok for paying guests was not however accurate. Below is a direct extract sent to the reviewer in response to an email.
“While it was our first year of booking [with Holiday Lettings]*, I am very surprised by your comments, as you are our fifth paying booking, all of the previous paying bookings also included two families, with children of various ages without a single complaint about the property...none of our other paying guests have found anything to be wrong. On the contrary they have stated what a good time they had."
* - not in original email.
The comments regarding the property managers were unwarranted, as they in fact bent over backwards to help the reviewer throughout their stay, including, going out to purchase a parasol at their specific request. The comments are completely opposite to the comments from everyone else who stayed at the property that summer.
I am not sure if they were looking for a refund?
