“Be Warned an Awful Experience”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 for a stay in November 2013
3
people found this review helpful

The property is not a cottage as described but a two up two down mid terrace in the middle
in the centre of an ex local authority housing estate in a less than desirable area of Chester and is not appropriate for a holiday let. The walk into Chester is 35/45 minutes and the return in darkness is daunting. The cleanliness in the kitchen, appliances, sinks and ground floor wooden surfaces were so unhygienic that we had to clean ourselves before using. The experience was so bad we stayed only one night and booked into a hotel in Chester. The owners have refused to pay us any compensation.

This is a very unusual complaint. Over the last nine and a half years of letting we have accommodated over 300 families at Baker’s Cottage. In that time no other guests left early because they were unhappy with the house or its location, or indeed for any other reason that we are aware of.
We were astonished to hear from these guests that they had left after one night of their three night stay without even speaking to us first about their concerns. Sadly, it seems that Baker’s Cottage didn’t suit them; however, we consider their demand for compensation of twice the cost of their holiday to be unreasonable.
We have referred them to the dispute resolution service provided by the English Association of Self Catering Operators (EASCO). As members of EASCO, we are committed to their code of practice and willing to abide by their independent arbitration scheme.
The term ‘holiday cottage’ is a common description in the UK holiday industry for this type of small house. In the past we have considered and rejected other descriptions as they could lead guests to expect a larger property. Since many of our previous guests also refer to it as a cottage we believe this is a reasonable description.
The assertion that it is located in the centre of an ex local authority housing estate is untrue.
The distance from the cottage to the Cross at the city centre, is 0.8 miles which, at average walking speed, is about 15 minutes away so we find it hard to understand this reviewer’s claim that it took them 45 minutes.
Chester is a relatively benign and friendly city but we understand that guests may be apprehensive about walking in an unfamiliar place at night which is why we provide phone numbers for local taxi firms.
We ask our guests to contact us with any questions or concerns regarding the cottage. The cleanliness of the cottage is especially important to us and if there were problems then we would not have hesitated to call the cleaners back straight away to put them right. Unfortunately, the guests undertook to clean the cottage themselves instead of reporting the issues to us and left us with no evidence to verify that it was unsatisfactory.
We love our cottage and are disappointed that these guests seem to have dismissed it out of hand when so many others have found it such a great base for exploring one of the most beautiful cities in England.

We stayed here at very short notice. The cottage was warm and comfortable. The area was very handy for walking to the south side of the city. It was a real "Home from Home". The kitchen was so well supplied with equipment that there was no room to put any food.

The Fish and Chip shop around the corner was very good and not expensive.

It’s always gratifying to read that our guests felt at home at the cottage – we want our guests to feel comfortable there and find it a warm and welcoming base to return to after exploring Chester in the winter months.
We look forward to welcoming them back in the future,
Jo & Peter

We stayed recently at Bakers Cottage and can say it is a real home from home. The cottage is very well equipped with everything we could possibly need. Wifi was available and reliable and there is off street parking for one car. It also only a short walk to Chester city centre. The booking process was simple and efficient. We would highly recommend.
