A Victorian Village Inn
Reviewed 25 March 2007

The Victorian Village website describes sweet, appealing cottages, filled with antiques and touches of history. We arrived Thursday, March 22nd for a four night stay. The first cottage we booked was very small, so we requested a larger one (double the price). Initially it looked cozy yet roomy. It was the "Prince Albert" cottage, with a loft.

It did not take long before we realized things were not as they seemed. Some of them are:
1. No batteries in the smoke alarms
2. No phone
3. Battered and broken furniture
4. No towels, no soap, no shampoo.
5. No batteries in the remote for the TV.
6. The twin bed in the loft was leaning against the railing, with lamps on the floor...no table to set them on...no bedding for the bed.....

The floors were filthy with some sort of pet hair, perhaps a long haired cat or golden retreiver dog. All of the chair and table legs were filled with dirt and fur. The cottage smelled strongly of cat urine. The bathroom sink didn't drain, nor did the door close, since the handles were broken.

The paint was chipping, and generally the entire place was in great disrepair. I have attached some photos with the hope people considering this place take a look and understand it's not as it appears on their website.

We were very misguided by their web page. We stayed in the "Alice in Wonderland" cottage and expected alot more than what we got.... We expected a queen bed 2 twins and a double, we got a queen, 2 twin hospital quality plastic mattresses, and a futon couch that was hardly a double. We expected a hot tub, we got a 2 person jacuzzi, wich would of been fine except the hot water ran out before the tub was even half way full!! We expected 2 fireplaces we got a very nice gas fireplace and a log that was plugged into the wall that glowed.... We expected a furnished kitchenette, we got a couple plates a frying pan a strainer and 4 coffee mugs!!!

We were very disappointed. This place has so much potential but it seems as if no one is taking care of it!! It was very very filthy!! I don't think the curtains have been washed ever!
We made due and tried not to complain to much so we could enjoy the weekend but it was very uncomfortable. We skipped making breakfast on Sunday and left for home!
