Reviews

    • “What was stated in the advert was met by expectations”

    Mrs Kelly, NORWICH, September 2018

    • “If I had one tiny criticism it would be that the sofas where very low and not easy to get off when you are ladies of mature years. On the we had a really great holiday and would definitely return.”

    Ms Horton, Redditch, August 2018

    • “Really good stay - house was very clean and great location.”

    Miss Allen, Fareham, July 2018

    • “Although we wanted a cottage close to amenities if you are sleeping in the twin room to the front of the house then you will need ear plugs the street is very noisy all through the night with taxi cars coming and going the taxi drivers talking on their radios no mention of the taxi firm which operates from their offices a few metres away from the cottage. The patio area at the b back of the cottage is described as an area to hide from the hustle and bustle but with a hotel to the rear of the cottage and a row of about 10 waste bins this was not the case, however if none of this bothers you then this cottage is certainly close to the town .”

    Ms Eisner, Blairgowrie, September 2018

    • “We had no towels available when we arrived on Friday night and didn’t get any for 3 day’s...I think you need a local person on hand to deal with problems......every time we rang up we got through to Chester after being passed on through about 6 options. And if you are serious about looking after guests as well as maximising profits you would have a person available to do just this. It’s not on to expect guests to collect their own towels from the office.Is this not part of the service? Also we had to collect the key from the office before we could get in. Be aware that it would be much easier for guests if harder for you if the key was at the house in a key box....what a pain to try and find your office in a one way street after driving a long way and feeling tired and wanting to settle in. The heating broke down for a short time.The plug got stuck in the bath so we couldn’t use it for a short time. No instructions in the house or welcome pack......no tourist information...never got the dvd to work at all. The house was clean so please don’t blame the cleaners. We are experienced users of holiday cottages all over the uk. Other cottages in Keswick where we have stayed provide a better, caring service...can I suggest you have a local person available with a local phone number who can be contacted over the weekend as well if necessary...and without having to phone Chester....do think about how to improve your service for guests and make them feel welcome....”

    Mrs Bromley-Webb, Carnforth, March 2018
