We would like to comment on our recent stay at the Bowerhouse Inn where we were allocated a premium room in the main building.
Our first impressions were that the room was a reasonable size although a little dark. However on closer inspection it appeared quite grubby and after an uncomfortable night’s sleep it became obvious that the mattress was very worn and uncomfortable and I, myself, suffered back pains for several days afterwards.
The shower also left a lot to be desired. The grouting was black and mouldy and the showerhead could not be adjusted for showering and could only be used at a 90 degree angle. Also the bathroom door could not be closed from within the bedroom and had to be left ajar.
There were stains on the carpet and window seat furnishings. We also wondered why there was an ash tray on the chest of drawers.
The good points about the room were the flat screen TV, the fluffy towels and the toiletries.
It doesn’t give us pleasure to make these comments but we have done so in the hope that the management will take note and improve the room for future visitors. We were unable to express our concerns on departure as no manager was available.
