“Would highly recommend!”
Reviewed 16 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

My husband and I have just arrived home from Coachman's Cottage. This is a quaint, quirky, warm and cosy cottage situated in a beautiful part of Pembrokeshire. The cottage was cleaned to a high standard and finishing small touches such as tea, coffee, milk, welsh cakes and Lily o Brien's chocolates were much appreciated. Extremely comfortable cottage especially the bed and no evidence of dogs having previously stayed in the cottage. Solva is a quirky little village and St David's is a short drive away. Rosemary the owner was very helpful and was happy to answer any questions. My only complaint was we couldn't stay long enough due to work commitments.

“Sadly not 4*”
Reviewed 8 August 2012 for a stay in June 2012

location excellent.
Dog friendly, no signs of dog hair or smell.
Sadly not 4*. Cottage needs updating and is in need of a really good clean.
Sharing cottage with woodlice not ideal. Overall very disillusioned with the cottage and the response from the agent!

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property
Bedding & mattresses Kitchen & utensils
Bathroom cleanliness Other facilities & amenities

Management Response

Thank you for the review.

Following extensive direct correspondence with the customer after their stay we did our best to respond to their feedback in a constructive manner. As quoted in the agency’s terms and conditions (at the bottom of this reply) a customer needs to report any problem during their stay, rather than AFTER their holiday has ended. If they had done so, the issues they listed to us after they’d returned home from their holiday could have been fixed there and then.

As an example, here are some of the comments from the customer – things that the owner could have easily provided or explained to them:

‘No measuring jug or scales.

It would have been useful to have a fixed wall mirror rather than getting on your knees to dry my hair.

It would have been extremely helpful to have had the instructions for the current TV and DVD player, rather than the previous model.’

We would also like to confirm that the cottage is indeed a 4 star, as graded and as already confirmed to the customer by Visit Wales. Previous reviews confirm that other customers are very satisfied with the cottage and since this customer stayed we have had many other customers who have been very happy with their stay at the cottage.

The customer also mentioned woodlice and the owner acted on this immediately to make sure that these were eradicated. This has not been mentioned by any customers since so we are confident that this issue has also been solved. Based on the fact that the customer wasn’t satisfied with the cottage, and despite not being told about the issues until their holiday had ended, we also offered the customer a discount on any future booking they made with us.

Quote from the Terms & Conditions.

In the event of any problem arising on arrival or during the holiday, the Holidaymaker should immediately bring this to the attention of the Property Owner or their representative. If this does not solve the problem, the Holidaymaker should immediately inform Best of Wales in order that it may be investigated and rectified whenever possible. Best of Wales regret that claims for compensation cannot be considered after the holiday has ended if we have not been informed as above.
