“Perfect for big get togethers!”
Reviewed 2 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This was our second stay at Rose Bank, with a group of friends - its perfect for big gatherings as the house is huge and ideal for numerous families. We are a group of 6 families in various shapes and forms - the place just swallows us up, with lots of sleeping variations. Such a grand, unique house - kids loved the hot tub, snooker, hide and seek and playing the piano. Everything you need out of a house. Great value in a central location!

Thanks for hospitality Margaret and Paul - and looking forward to seeing you again next year, we'll be in touch.

Regards.

Julian and all

“One of our best holidays ever!”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We love this house and the wonderful couple who are kind enough to rent their beautiful family home to us.
Its got such a lovely vibe about the place and everyone of my family who stayed with us walked in and went wow!
They have thought of everything for us, plenty of things for adults, our favourite was all sitting round the rather impressive fire in the lounge, or playing the piano in the grand lobby. A few of them were in the games room which appealed to all ages.
The hot tub was a great success for the kids.
We would love to come again for a yearly celebration!

“run down and did not appear as in the photos”
Reviewed 16 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

Poor quality and not as advertised. Although a nice old building, a majority of the rooms/fittings were run down or broken. Photos had obviously been taken some time ago and did not reflect the current run down property it is now. The garden was unusable, the grass knee high and there was an abundance of brambles and weeds, thus making use of the provided crochet set useless! The games room was damp and musty, our on-suite 'as advertised' bathroom was approx 10m down the hall and was infact a communal bathroom. The entire house was filthy, carpets covered in muck! It becomes a worry when the host instructs you not to strip the beds upon departure!, the ceilings also leaked water when it rained, apart from the above the house was great????.

Sorry but I do not recognise this person as a guest booked with us.
Nor do I recognise the description. There is around two acres of garden and a small area is left natural but there is a full sized football pitch on which they could have played croquet.
We do not have a games room - there is a pool table in the library - and as this has hundreds of books, some quite old and valuable, there is no way that it is "damp & musty"
We have two en suite bathrooms and both are adjoining the bedrooms.
We ask that beds not be stripped so that we can check all bedding and if any problems (stain / tears) we know who might be responsible.

“Fantastic 40th weekend with lots of friends!”
Reviewed 14 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Rose Bank at the beginning of September with a large group of friends to celebrate our joint 40th's. The house is huge, full of character and has everything we could have needed. We hired the pool area also which included a hot-tub, covered cooking area with fridges and lots of outdoor chairs & tables. The pool was beautifully warm and hot-tub was a huge hit. The house itself has lots of bedrooms, some huge and some with en-suites.
There were lots of quirky and characterful parts to the house including 'secret' staircases, a hidden playroom and the top floor bedrooms were perfect to use as a 'dormitory' for the older teenagers in the group. The dining room has a huge table which is great for large group meals and you can dress the room as you like. We did a big Tesco delivery at the start of the weekend and that worked perfectly with Paul, the owner kindly taking the order in (as it came early) for us. There was also a fresh home-made cream cake in the fridge for our arrival!
The games room/library with pool table and table football was another hit with the children and the adults enjoyed some fizz in the very comfortable lounge.
We have now stayed at Rose Bank twice and would recommend it highly if you want a beautiful old house full of character, slightly quirky but unpretentious and homely. Thank you so much to Margaret and Paul for another fantastic weekend.

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?
Liked best: Rose Bank is not precious and we felt comfortable to let the children free to explore!
Liked least: Sometimes the showers & hot water were temperamental but this did not detract from the beautiful house!

I would like to stress we are a group of 24 that have been renting large properties as a group for many years now and have NEVER had any cause for complaint with any other rental.

This property could have been ideal for our use. However the standards of cleanliness and lack of customer care has lead me to write this review. Again a shame as the customer care pre visit was most helpful. Even making the effort to email us to inform us that the leisure area had been 'professional cleaned'. !!!???

This is the same people as the review below. Please see my response.
As can be seen by other reviews very many others have been happy with the property / facilities / owners and make repeat bookings.
We are always pleased to welcome decent honest guests.

“Great house for group but outside facility dirty,rundown,health hazard”

people found this review helpful

The house was ideal for our group of friends, very unique, but we were very disappointed with our stay due to a number of issues- the showers were dangerously hot and difficult to adjust, and areas in the house that were grubby and dirty,namely the kitchen which we cleaned ourselves. Also the outside pool area needs a total revamp,the pool water is a health hazard,as when under the water you could not see the person-very dangerous, the chairs and tables were filthy,we cleaned them,cushions had seen better days,and the bbq had no regulator heat control.The oven had a plastic bag round the gas pipe and bar area filthy.
Overall disappointed with site and owners reaction to us.

TripAdvisor will not allow me to say how dishonest and malicious this group were - or the action we are now taking against them.
I can only suggest that you look at the many reviews throughout the Summer as a true reflection of our property and services.
Most of our guests are decent, honest people and we are happy to welcome many of them back for repeat visits.

Great place to stay, the swimming pool was a welcome addition. Lawn space made games outside great fun. The owners are brilliant people and were very understanding and accommodating. Would definitely go back. Would suit a large family get together at Christmas or New Year. Many thanks again guys!
