I am struggling to believe some of the "excellent" reviews of Afonwen Farm. I have just returned from a week's stay here. Deep breath ---
- Hosts did not greet us on arrival, did not speak to us at all for WHOLE week and did not say goodbye, (They were on site); have rented holiday cottages for over 15 years, never had this before, not at all impressed. cottage very tired and dirty internally, mattresses very cheap and extremely uncomfortable, springs very hard to sleep on, dreadful undersheets. Dirty tissues down side of bed ON ARRIVAL. Tumble drier - dangerous, it continued to turn and operate when door was opened, very dangerous if young children around. Lighting - all lighting very dim, and hard to read by. Downstairs shower - drainage completely inadequate - soaked bathroom and bedroom floor making it very slippery if shower gel used. No mop to wipe floor with. Upstairs shower curtain inadequate, floor got soaked. Curtains didn't fit some of the windows and were hanging by a few hooks. No indoor airer to dry clothes. No oven glove - had to buy one! Oven - VERY slow to cook - dishwasher - top rack broken, powder dispenser broken. Internal staircases - very steep - not suitable for young children. Tennis court & table tennis table - nets broken. Personal outside dustbin not emptied - still had previous hirers rubbish in it. Broken music player in bedroom. All equipment was basically tired, broken and mismatched, looked like contents of a car boot sale. Never written a review like this before, but it needs to be said.
Visitors book was a couple of sheets of loose leaf paper so all the negative reviews could be removed, unsurprisingly all other reviews were glowing! Don't suppose my review lasted a day in the folder before it was removed. Although local area was nice, this cottage spolit our holiday. Normally we have one day on-site to have a rest from driving, but couldn't stay there for a whole day. The whole thing gave the impression that the owner wasn't interested in their clients comfort.
The reviews that say they are the best hosts and the cottages are wonderful and clean are in my cynical view, not to be completely believed.
