“With a bit more thought to furnishings and better care it could be perfect”
Reviewed 18 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

This property is 3 storey end-terrace townhouse facing fields and backing onto a marina, situated in a relatively new development which has a large number of empty properties, hence is very quiet.

Good points: Quiet location with good views; quality kitchen appliances; memory foam mattress in main bedroom, parking space for one car.

Could do better: Chairs were not very comfortable; lounge layout didn't work and door didn't keep closed so we didn't use it in the end; TV in lounge didn't have a DVD player. Shelves and/or hooks needed in bathrooms and showers. Unique taste in art, some paintings in the lounge may be scary for young children. All the bedding & towels were clean but smelled damp, like they'd taken days to dry

Poor: Bathrooms were covered in dust and limescale the taps couldn't have been cleaned in weeks and there were dirt splashes on the splashbacks. The toilets were filthy, all the cleaner had done was pour toilet cleaner around the bowl, there were pubic hairs and faeces in the bowls and wee marks over the seats.I bought a 25p bottle of bleach a £2.50 bottle of limescale remover and some cleaning cloths and spent the first morning cleaning the sinks, toilets, shower screens, taps, showers and radiators, they came up gleaming and good as new, how hard is that for a cleaner to do? Most of the cutlery was rusted. No cleaning cloths in kitchen or bathrooms. No can opener, but plenty of wine glasses!

Layout:
Ground floor:
The property is not really suitable for those with walking difficulties even though there is a bedroom and shower room downstairs because the bedroom has bunkbeds and there are steps to get into the property.There is also a generously sized kitchen/diner with outside seating area overlooking the marina The seating areas seat 7 adults inside and 2 or 3 outside. TV with DVD player in kitchen.

First floor:
Lounge with two sofas, TV , balcony seating two. Large shower room. Double bedroom.

Third floor:
Two en-suite double bedrooms, one en-suite is a small shower room, the other is a full bathroom.

The house is cleaned regularly, it is relatively new with high-end fittings and appliances. The cleaner vehemently disagrees with this verdict on cleanliness. There was an issue with one toilet which kept flushing which the plumber has attended to. These things can happen in any house. As there are 4 toilets in the property this should not have been an issue. In addition there were cleaning cloths but the guest apparently was not happy to use the J cloths provided. There is also a small shop on site if alternative cleaning materials are preferred and I am always happy to refund the cost (approval first please from myself of caretaker).

There is a sloped access to the property as well as the steps and my disabled mother uses the ground floor, with access to a shower room (adapted for handicapped persons) and the kitchen/diner but the rest of the house is not easily accessible for disabled persons.

This is a house, not a hotel with concierge service, which many guests conveniently forget. The house has a 4-star rating from the two letting agencies I use and is of a very high standard throughout. It is inspected regularly by both myself and them. Reviews are welome but a more balanced view is appreciated. Considering the low cost per person and the presentation of the house - ample towels, soaps, accessories etc. the house is remarkable value for money.
