We were a bit disappointed with the apartment.
First of all I would like to mention the electricity meter. It's not a big deal, however since electricity is by £1 meter, I would like to make a point… More
Thank you for your comments.
Sorry that the meter had £9 credit and not £10. This is the normal amount for a week and using meters is pretty standard practice. As your stay was arrival day, two full days and a departure day we are surprised that you found the amount inadequate. Families of four who have stayed for a week have been happy with the amount. It really comes down to individual usage and their requirements. If you used more than £9 of electricity we would be happy to refund you the £1 you mentioned. We find that providing unlimited and free electricity can lead to waste which we do not want to encourage.
We have provided photos of the shower room and WC area so people can see for themselves the overall condition and cleanliness of the property. It is cleaned before and after every booking. We think that "covered" is incorrect and misleading and perhaps a more accurate word could have been used. Some difficult to reach corners have blackened and we will in any event remove the grouting and renew to avoid this issue in future. Again the guestbook does not mention this previously but your comments are valued.
The BlueBar is a well known and liked asset in Porthtowan with weddings and events regularly being held there.The close location of the BlueBar is a feature that most guests enjoy and we have provided photos from the balcony overlooking the BlueBar roof to the beach and sea. Again no adverse comments in the guestbook about the BluBar position and of course we are unable to do anything about that. We will alter the description somewhat to reflect your comments in case others may have an issue with this.
This is the first negative comment we have had about the apartment and whilst dissapointing we dont feel the comments are generally shared. All the comments made in the guestbook have been positive and many have repeated their bookings.
Thanks again for your review.
