A lovely holiday home slightly let down by poor housekeeping
Firstly, we use Suffolk Secrets every year and we’ve always been happy when staying in Southwold. We also really enjoyed our stay at Rokeby Lodge last week and would consider booking it again. It’s a very well-configured property with loads of space, a comfortable lounge area, and extremely comfortable beds. It’s also in an ideal location, with the Sole Bay Inn next door-but-four and with the sea front only a short walk beyond that. What disappointed us, however, were a series of maintenance and housekeeping issues that shouldn’t have arisen. These were exacerbated by the fact that Suffolk Cottage Care was insistent that we couldn’t enter the cottage before the prescribed 4pm deadline despite it having been empty for a while preceding our visit, which is what they also told us. We have to accept this deadline but under such circumstances we also, therefore, expected to find the property in immaculate order. However... 1. There was food left in the freezer and the the freezer was in bad need of defrosting. 2. The tumble dryer was a fire risk with fluff in the filter, fluff in the condenser and a full water reservoir. 3. The main fridge had only one shelf left in the door, and that was broken such that anything on it fell off when the door was shut. 4. We couldn’t find a dustpan and brush, making such things as cleaning out the fire grate very difficult. 5. The shower in the family bathroom was next to useless and one had to stand on the plug hole in order to get a shower of water. 6. The microwave oven was missing its glass turntable, making it useless. (The oven was replaced straight away after we reported this.) 7. The control knobs on the ceramic hob kept falling off. 8. There were no logs or kindling left for us to build a fire, and the basket in the fire grate fell through when we first tried to build a fire (using our own logs and kindling). The reason that we’ve listed everything here is that we don’t know where the problem really lies, and when we get passed from one agency to another, it’s never a happy experience. In previous years, everything was managed through Suffolk Secrets, and we’ve sometimes been able to get into our accommodation early if cleaning has been completed early. This year, however, Suffolk Secrets referred us to Suffolk Cottage Care for information about access times, and with the exception of one helpful lady who promised to check and come back to us but didn’t, we just felt that Suffolk Cottage Care were feeding us a line about a 4pm arrival instead of checking. Also, there were no contact details for the owner and we don’t therefore know whether the owner was ignoring good advice or was being poorly served by Suffolk Cottage Care when it came to the housekeeping and maintenance issues. Moreover, with three parties involved, the buck might easily be passed around to our detriment. As previously stated, we might well wish to book Rokeby Lodge again. We really loved it and greatly appreciated the opportunity for a comfortable night’s sleep in holiday accommodation. However, we would wish for the owner, the booking agency and the housekeeping company to make sure between them that the cottage is both safe and fully functional for guests before they arrive.
