“Needs updating regarding comfort”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2016

Food preparation area non existent and free standing oven provided inadequate. Fortunately good Hotel and take away very close to accommodation. Kitchen requires complete upgrade. The bed settee suitable for only two people and most uncomfortable. the open plan living area would benefit from a smaller table to accommodate a three seater settee. In reality the living space is only suitable for two adults and not five as advertised. Sleeping arrangements good and cottage warm. Cruden Bay is a lovely holiday destination with beach and woodland walks so very close

Owner's reply: The Kitchen unit has been extended since this visit and some furnishing changed ; we are quality tested by the Scottish Tourist Board every year and are 2 star rated in their Quality requirements as advertised on our listing .A somewhat unfair review in context of previous reviews just prior to their visit . I agree that 2/3 adults or couple with 2 children are the optimum for comfort in the small cottage .
