“poorly maintained, outdated and in need of a thorough clean.”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2016

This was 1 of 2 lodges we booked for a 1 week stay in Cornwall. On first impressions, the lodge smelled of wet dog, which we found disappointing given that we picked it specifically because they stated no pets were allowed. There were several stains on the carpets and the lodge had not been cleaned at all, following the departure of the previous guests. Having driven 7hrs, we were forced to go straight to Tesco and purchase cleaning items, crockery and cutlery as given the condition we the lodge in, ( food waste in the cutlery drawers and dirty cutlery and crockery ) dirty toilets, we had no faith that anything in the lodge was fit for use. We then spent some 3 hours cleaning the lodge ourselves as the cleaner was unable to attend until the following day. By the time the cleaner attending at around 12 noon the following day, we were advised that she had only come to clean the kitchen and as We were in the process of preparing lunch, the cleaners visit was of little help. Given its condition, we did not have any faith that the hot tub had been cleaned since the previous guests and therefore did not use it during our stay. We alerted the maintenance person to the fact that the master bedroom door was misaligned and unable to shut/lock properly; he confirmed the door needed repair and advised that he would reattend the following day; not only did he not reattend, he seems to bolt, any time he saw us around the complex. There was only 1 door to the Tv unit and this was hanging off. The doors to the integrated fridge and freezer were misaligned. The heating system did not work and therefore the downstairs was always cold, whilst the upstairs was like a sun trap and was always very stuffy. There was no working hob light and No one came to test the water of the hot tub in either of the lodges. The sofas were so sunken and worn, we ended up covering them with spare quilting and sheets during our stay. The leisure centre passes worked and therefore had to be taken to reception to be recalibrated. We were advised by the main office that the previous guests 'trashed lodge 21' and that it required updating. However, having stood on an exposed nail in the sauna and the general condition of the communal areas, showers and unstable handrails to steps, it appeared to us that the entire site was being neglected and left to deteriorate. Had we have not driven so far and already made arrangements to meet friends later that week, we would have vacated the lodge much sooner than we did. We only booked the lodge based on the positive reviews from the holiday Lettings site, which in hindsight do not accurately reflect their present condition.

We have read your review with dismay. Following a summer of successful lets pre and post your visit we were naturally devastated by your comments made after your holiday and decided to pop down to the lodges to investigate for ourselves. We do not allow pets so I am not sure what the wet dog smell was that you were referring to and certainly on our revisit we were not met by any unwelcome smells. The site housekeeper herself had cleaned the lodge prior to your visit along with several other cleaners and she is adamant that it was cleaned thoroughly. If you had telephoned us with your complaints at the time of your arrival instead of following your departure we would certainly have made sure that everything was to your satisfaction. We understand that you turned the cleaners away after having complained that the lodge was dirty , your review states that you spent 3 hours cleaning the lodge to your satisfaction and yet you waited until the Monday evening at 9.10pm following your arrival on the Saturday and use of the lodge by your family for 2 full days prior to your taking photos of 2 pieces of spaghetti in the cutlery drawer to complain about. We are at a loss to know why you refused to give the cleaners access to address your complaints. The hot tub had been drained, cleaned and refilled prior to your arrival and was checked daily during your stay, and the hot tub staff confirm that chemicals were added to adjust the water following your use of the hot tub to maintain the water. The fridge and freezer door were misaligned – not at all how we left them at the start of the summer – the fridge had been pushed back with heavy handling and we were able to pull it forward slightly to realign the doors – thank you for pointing this out to us. Both the fridge and freezer were fully operational. We could not find fault with the door to the TV unit – it appears that you put this back together again after taking the photo. The bedroom door has dropped slightly and after the summer season this will be rehung – fortunately it did still close and lock. The heating system is a brand new heating system – for it to operate you needed to turn it on. If you had telephoned, again we could have talked you through how to turn it on at the controls on the kitchen wall – the heating was not left turned on as you were staying at the lodge in the height of summer in August but you would have been more than welcome to use it – I appreciate that it is sometimes difficult operating machines, heating systems etc that you are not used to but we were at the end of the phone if you needed to contact us with any queries. There were also 2 freestanding plug in heaters in the downstairs for you to use . Thank you for pointing out that the extractor fan light was not working – we will get this replaced. We noted that all hob lights were working. We were also glad that you were able to get the spare leisure passes recalibrated at reception to give you extra passes to the leisure centre extra to the fob on your main keys. We alerted the site to your complaint about a nail in the sauna and they have sent maintenance staff down to investigate– I gather that you did not complain about this to anyone at the time of your visit to ensure the safety of others. Yes there were 2 stains on the carpets that the cleaners could not get removed prior to your visit – we review the décor on an annual basis and have decided to replace the carpets and settees in both of our lodges along with some of the curtains to give a more up to date look for the next season of letting.
