“BEAUTIFUL AREA. DISGRACEFUL COTTAGE”
Reviewed January 4, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

The drive up to this cottage was beautiful but as I went through the front door my heart sank. The walls were yellowed as it looked as though it hadn't been decorated for a very long time. It was just filthy with very noticeable dust and cobwebs in every room. The kitchen in particular was a total and utter disgrace. Everything we touched was covered in grease meaning that we spent our first day washing all the cutlery and crockery before we could attempt to use it. I found dead spiders and cobwebs in the pans which were very old and scratched. The cooker was covered in grease and fat dripped into our food when we used the hob. A rose tree from the overgrown garden had pushed its way through the kitchen window and was growing inside. The curtains had thick grease and dust on the tops. The fire blanket was also covered in grease making it unusable if needed. The fire extinguisher was Lso covered in grease and cobwebs. The conservatory was unusable as it looked like a lean too on the side. It was full of rubbish and also filthy. There was a basket of very yellowed newspapers in the corner making it in my opinion a fire hazard. The only chair had a hole in it making it unusable even if you wanted to sit in such a filthy place. Outside was no better. The garden furniture had turned green and turned into green slime when my daughter tried to clean it..upstairs in the cottage was no better. I found rubbish under on of the beds. The mattresses on the bunk beds were so thin that we had to pad them out with blankets and duvets. The walls in the bathroom were filthy and needed redecorating. The rubbish bins were rusty. We found windows that wouldn't close and others that wouldn't open. Back downstairs there were dog hairs on the window seat. We were told the cleaner brought her dog as she cleaned. The sofa bed was unusable as it was also filthy and it smelt when it was opened up. I spent most of the week sleeping on it closed up until my family booked me into a nearby hotel for a night so I could have at least one good sleep in a comfortable bed before we left. The whole stay was a total disaster . When we spoke to the owner who was very rude. He said he didn't know what we were talking about and suggested we leave. It was Bank holiday week and because there were 7 of us including 2 small children everywhere was booked up. My daughter and I had both been unwell for many months leading up to our holiday and the last thing we needed was the stress that this brought us. The only best part to our stay in this cottage was leaving it.

Management Response

It is very disappointing and sad to receive such a review, when every effort was made to make these guests welcome and comfortable, as the vast majority of guests have found the cottage to be. However, this was a last minute booking, made without regard by them to what the cottage offered, adding additional guests beyond that which would normally accept for a week's stay. Furthermore, the review is already six months old and the cottage has now been redecorated and updated during the winter break. Best to check for yourself!

“Great location but cottage does needs a good clean”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

Stayed in this cottage for a week in September. The location is excellent with walks from the doorstep and a couple minutes walk to the centre of Brockenhurst with it's shops and pubs. Unfortunately however, the cottage itself does need a really good clean, which is a shame because otherwise this could be a great cottage. The 'average' rating is taking into account the great location. :(

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed October 26, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Me and my partner have been coming to this cottage for a number of years, and we both love it for it’s lovely location. Situated in a small terrace overlooking a green, the area is quiet, but not too remote, and with parking right outside, loading and unloading your car is easy.

Ideally situated for walkers and cyclists, the village centre a short walk away, so you’re never far from a store, or the many nice pubs, restaurants and cafés in and around the village.

There’s a lovely large open fire in the lounge (you can buy some logs from the village hardware shop – not to mention just about anything else you might need), Freeview TV with built-in DVD player, and a video … should there be the odd occasion when ‘the great outdoors’ isn’t so great! There’s also an eclectic mix of books and novels that has evolved over the years, should you prefer reading.

With three bedrooms and a sofa bed, there is plenty of sleeping space, and a good-sized dining table means everyone can enjoy breakfast and meal times together.

The landlord is always very helpful, and does his best to accommodate us and ensure that our arrival, stay and departure goes smoothly and without a hitch. He can also recommend local places to eat, and things to do, should you be a new visitor to the area.

“Great area, but filthy cottage!!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

I have been visiting Brockenhurst from a very young age and love the area, however I have never visited somewhere so dirty!
Damp all over the kitchen walls, dead flies on the window sill, dirty windows (had to wash hands after opening them), washing machine did not work, dust everywhere, garden over grown so we could not even go in, could not go into conservatory without shoes because the floor was filthy!
Would not recommend stopping in this cottage, there are lots of other lovely cottage in the area.
There was also blonde hairs in both the double beds, almost like the cleaner had brought a dog with her while they cleaned, which I think is very unacceptable. While on holiday you expect a clean bed!!
For the price of the cottage we would expect a clean cottage, not one covered in dust and filth.
After the trip I informed the owner of the state of the house so other visitors were not as disappointed as us and he was very rude and could not wait to get me off the phone and disagreed with everything I said. He also said the dust and dirt would of appeared during the time the cleaner visited and we arrived.
