    A rundown, damp smelling house, broken window pane, broken light which blew the trip switch as seems to have a broken bulb jammed in it, Liquidizer poured boiling liquid over my arm (seal missing), broken glass in filter of dirty dishwasher that we cleaned out, broken door of clothes drier had to be propped closed with chair, broken sofa simply moved around when we reported it, outside lifts not working, torches not working and batteries replaced on request asking with with out toaster, work out topped lampshade, stained headboards, inadequate cleaning, stained damp wallpaper, toilet not working properly, toilet seat need fixing, could go on and on......

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I can only apologise for the issues you experienced during your recent stay. Unfortunately, some previous guests had broken the sofa, window, toilet, lights, etc. as well as removing light bulbs and batteries. As you were moved last minute from the property you were previously in due to the issues there, we hadn’t realised that these things had happened before your arrival. We did try to fix everything we possibly could once you reported it, but some of these things just weren’t an immediate fix I’m afraid. Obviously, getting a new sofa immediately was not an option, so my cleaner moved the sofa for you and replaced it with the spare sofa so that you had ample seating round the TV area for your stay. We did let the agent know that this was the quickest solution and to let you now that’s what would be done in the short term. She also replaced the toaster and batteries in the torches. Everything else has now either been fixed of is awaiting the tradesperson to fix next week. When I heard about the damp from the agent, I immediately suggested that you be moved to a different property, which I assume they relayed to you, as I didn’t want you or your party becoming ill during your stay. None of this excuses what you had to endure, I just wanted to ensure that you knew why some of these things had happened and that I was trying to fix as much as possible while you were there.

    We've stayed at Westgate cottage several times before and have thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but this time the cleanliness and general tired feel was not good. It's a beautiful location and a great house which we would love to own, but we have watched the deterioration over the years and it's quite saddening. Hopefully it will get a new lease of life and a smarten up but I think we're done staying there.😢

    Although very well equipped and comfortable, the cottage was let down by the awful smell within. It smelt as if very heavy smokers and dogs had lived there in the past. The pong was in the curtains and carpets and could easily be remedied by a professional clean.
