    Confirmed guest, 02/09/2016
    We had a lovely week in Suffolk and we're lucky with the weather with good access to forest walk, National trust properties and the Coast. The large enclosed garden at the property was great and very much appreciated by our dog. We were disappointed to find the property not as clean as we would expect and it appeared a little neglected. The adjoining door from the cottage to the main house resulted in quite a bit of noise including being able to hear conversations from the owners kitchen. The boiler outside was a little noisy as well as the trains, but these were not too bad in the grand scheme of things. A gathering of the owners friends resulted in us being unable to park one evening, and although a car was moved in order to allow us onto the drive when we popped out later the same issue appeared meaning we have to move our car again. A small issue but only 1 toilet roll was provided for the entire week- not really what I would expect.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I am very sorry to hear of your concerns and of course take them very seriously indeed and in particular those comments on the cleanliness and condition of the property. I take great care in presenting The Old Dairy for my guests and cleanliness is very high on my list of priorities. I personally clean the cottage for each of my guests, and being part of my home I like to keep it looking good. If you look at other reviews on this site you will see that scores for this are always very good, 10 out of 10 in fact for the previous review. The cottage was cleaned and presented to the same standard for both. It is very rare we have any gatherings at the house as we don’t tend to do that when holiday guests are here, but as your booking was close to the date and we thought the cottage was empty over the weekend the gathering of friends on Bank Holiday Monday was already planned. I did make the holiday company aware that it may be a little noisy, and that you should be advised of that before booking, especially as you had a young child with you. I can only apologise if you were not given this information. This is also what affected the parking on that evening only, for which I did come and see you with a small gift and an apology for the inconvenience. In response to this review I will make sure I accept no late bookings if I have anything planned at the house, so future guests won’t be affected in that way. The cottage is self catering for two people, we provide our guests with tea, coffee, sugar, milk a kitchen and toilet roll, all towels and bedding and a welcome pack of wine, cakes and of course doggy treats for our canine guests! I would have been more than happy to give you an extra toilet roll if requested. I do enjoy meeting guests at the Old Diary and try and make their stay as enjoyable as possible, in fact our next guests are returning for their third visit with us, so I am genuinely sorry that your visit didn’t live up to your expectations.
