Not very good. Uncomfortable bed and sofa. Bathroom sink leaking leaving horrible smell. Bedroom door doesn't close. Shower was a joke. Pigeon poo all over patio on arrival. Not good
Nice, quiet, well-maintained chalet park in a good location for beach and town. The bar/restaurant is very friendly and welcoming and the food is reasonably priced for decent size portions.
Communication with owner was very good prior to my stay and I was very much looking forward to my holiday.
I was expecting small and basic as stated, but also expected the chalet to be clean. Unfortunately though, it was not (esp kitchenette and bathroom) and the overall build-up of grime was quite visible and unacceptable.
I spent considerable time cleaning to make things hygienic and comfortable for my stay, but didn't bother to inform the owner because there was nothing she could have done that night anyway. I only told her later because she messaged me first to check I had found every ok on arrival. Even then, I elaborated only on her subsequent request. She apologised and gave a few excuses, and offered me £10 (although I had not asked for any refund or compensation at all) which I thanked her for, but declined and told her not to worry about it as I had dealt with the problems and was happy to get on with my stay.
I thought that was the end of it and got on with enjoying my holiday, but a few days into it I accidentally received some text messages from the owner which were clearly not meant for me, containing some very derogatory and insulting remarks about me! No need to go into the content details on here, but it was rather unexpected and upsetting, especially as I had asked for nothing whatsoever and had honestly said not to worry about things. I did politely let her know that I had received them, and she did apologise profusely, but I still felt it was unnecessary and somewhat unprofessional on her part.
I hadn't planned to do a review initially, but on reflection, as I rely on tripadvisor reviews myself when booking things, I felt it was only fair to let others know what they might realistically expect. (Many reviews remarked on the cleanliness of the chalet, but unfortunately, this was definitely not the case for my stay.)
Hopefully, the cleaning issues have been properly addressed so that nobody else has this problem in future....but if they do encounter them, at least they have been forewarned.
Really enjoyed are stay as it was nice quite area was perfect for wat we needed as I work hard peace bs quire was just wanted we was looking for was amazing be willing to book again anytime
Everything we were hoping for and more. The Chalet was a home from home, everything we needed for a perfect relaxing break. We took our small dog with us, and she absolutely loved it. The beach was 5 minutes away, we walked along it for 15 minutes or so and into Mablethorpe itself, where dogs are allowed in lots of shops, clubs etc. The cherry on the cake for us was the on site pub/restaurant. Good value for money, excellent food, and most welcoming (especially for the dog!)
Would totally recommend, and will be in touch early next year to book a return visit.
