Thank you for your review and we were disappointed to hear that there were sertain aspects of your holiday which were not what you anticipated. The wi-fi hotspot is located in the Games Room rather than in each individual property and your information folder would have directed you to the games room for internet access but you are correct to point out that there is no mobile phone reception. Providing additional cookware is something we will certainly think about to ensure that you are not spending too much holiday time on those household chores. We would have been able to supply additional crockery etc. if we had known at the time that this would have helped. I will also speak to our housekeeping team about the cobweb issue so thank you for pointing that out.
