It must puzzle readers as it did me that the previous review was so full of negativity when all others are extremely positive. One can only be left to ponder the author's personality, unreasonable expectations and intent in writing such malicious comments. My husband and I can verify all the positive written accounts that have been posted about this lovely little B&B and the owner.
Ann Maree was most welcoming in inviting us into her home for our two day stay. She had a fire that constantly burned day and night in the guest's lounge room. Although below zero outside, the house was cosy and the bed that was fitted with an electric blanket and a fluffy doona ensured we had a good night's sleep.
The breakfasts were a highlight as the quality of the home cooked meal was excellent! Nothing was too much trouble. One morning, three different hot meals were cooked and delivered similtaneously, to suit the tastes of all guests. The table was set with the nicest crockery and the little extras such as serviette holders, potted tea and peaceful background music made the experience all the more enjoyable.
The garden was lovely and we came home with a potted rosemary and two jars of Anne Maree's delicious homemade jam.
The previous writer was disturbed by the room being entered throughout the day. Isn't this what occurs in all establishments when cleaning staff make beds, vacuum, replace or dry wet towels etc?
Although I am a pet owner to two cats and a dog, I am not in the habit of taking animals on holiday. However, I would imagine it would be a requirement of health inspectors that sleeping and eating areas be thoroughly aired and cleaned to eliminate odours and pet hair. It would be therefore reasonable to expect a cottage that had a dog residing in it, would be aired and an additional cost would be incurred for shampooing carpets.
I would advise anyone considering staying at Winter Rose Cottage to take into consideration all postings on this site to obtain an overall objective review.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay and we would recommend it to others. Thank your for your hospitality Ann Maree.
