“Lovely location, but filthy!”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2012

We booked this property for a long weekend for myself, my husband and our 2 children who are 1 and 3. The property is impressive externally and on first glance was spacious inside with everything we needed. Unfortunately as we took a closer look, the place was filthy! We found cigarette ends on top of the fridge, crisp packets down the side of the bed, the highchair was covered in caked on food and mould, mould around the windows and showers, caustic soda crystals on the floor, the list goes on, suffice to say it was not the sort of place you would let a baby crawl! I tried to hiint that it needed cleaning to the lady in charge, but she was oblivious to it and simply showed me where the cleaning cupboard was to do it myself. We spent 2 hours cleaning the place, stayed one night, then left and went to a lovely, clean hotel.
