2/5 Poor

Family celebration
The location of the property is excellent and we did have a good time together. However, we all felt that the property was way below the standard that we are used to for instance when booking through companies such as Rural Retreats. 1. The mattresses in almost all of the beds were well beyond their replacement date and were quite uncomfortable. The springs in one of the downstairs double mattresses were beginning to poke through the surface and made for very uncomfortable sleeping; 2. The bedding sheets and pillow cases were quite shoddy and some were appalling and many of the pillows again were beyond their replacement date; 3. The cutlery was really quite inadequate for a party of 12 people. There was a lot of it but there were lots of tiny and unsuitable items. The kitchen knives were in desperate need of sharpening but there was no sharpening implement. There was a number of different small coffee making implements all of which appeared quite usable and suitable at first glance until you got around to using them. We asked one of our family who arrived the next day to bring a cafetiere as well as some wine glasses of which there were only four; 4. Some of the cupboards under the sink were dirty; 5. Some of the bath mats had seen better days and appeared unhygienic. The drainage was quite poor particularly in the showers which caused them to back up so that your feet were in a cm or two of water; 6. Most of the downstairs rooms, particularly the lounge, were dark and dismal and two of the four light bulbs in the lounge were missing making this room very dark. The ventilation was generally quite poor with many windows unable to be opened because a key that fit the locks couldn’t be found. Most rooms felt rather damp and smelled musty. The conservatory became particularly hot on the one sunny evening that we had and it was difficult to keep it cool inside even with the door to the garden open; 7. The furniture throughout the ground floor was quite old and very tired and some, particularly in the lounge was not very clean. Some curtains were coming off the rail; 8. The furniture outside on the decking was really in a very poor state; 9. Finally, the garden was very overgrown and not very pleasant to look at. Some wisteria and ivy was growing through the windows. A fire-pit was advertised. In fact it was a small scorched bonfire area; The cleaning lady had done her best to make the house clean and presentable.
