  • Mr Smith

    “We were sold an overpriced run down lodge during half term.”

    Having not felt safe or clean for 3 days before anyone did anything I wont be rushing back. We have received a small partial refund which is a joke considering when we had to endure. We came home 2 days early in the end.

    Thank you for your feedback. We fully accept and apologise that cleanliness on this occasion was not up to the normal high standards. Please be assured we have passed your comments on to those responsible for housekeeping along with our sincere disappointment as we strive to maintain high standards at all times. We did however consider the significant £500 refund, acceptable to yourselves at the time, fair and reasonable compensation. In response to your comments regarding the lodge being ‘run down’ please note the lodge was completely refurbished in 2019 and is in very good condition. In marketing the lodge we always include numerous photographs such that guests can make informed decisions regarding price. Property Owner
