    Whilst this cottage is spacious it was generally dirty, the dishwasher still had food in it, the saucepans and glasses had to be washed before we could use them and the whole place feels uncared for. The sun room was nice when we finally managed to unlock the door, but there were slugs on the wall and the windows were dirty, I wrote my name in the dirt. The shower doesn't drain away and floods after a while as does the outside kitchen drain. There was no visitors handbook with instructions and when we contacted the owner the answer was that a previous tenant had taken the book and a new one was being prepared! This is rated as a 4 star cottage which it definitely is not and the owner was less than helpful with our complaints so we left early very disappointed and feeling cheated and upset. All in all my advice is to avoid it because until it has been thoroughly cleaned and updated it is more like an expensive 1 or 2 star.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Swiss Cottage grading is reviewed on a regular basis, repeatedly scoring 4 Stars. Reevoo customer rating for Swiss Cottage is at 8.5/10 over 99 customer reviews. Your scoring is extreme and unbalanced; for example you give 3 for location and 2 for local amenities. The average customer reviews are 8.8 for location and 8.6 for local amenities. You wrote that you didn't want to contact us during your stay as it seemed churlish and yet you didn't give us the chance to address the small number of issues which were easily rectifiable. The shower drain filter has now been cleared and the key to the sun room, which was very slightly stiff, has been changed. You complained about the TV reception, but you hadn't switched on the aerial booster, which is clearly labelled. Unusually the previous customers had forgotten to run the new dishwasher and so the crockery had to be hand washed to meet the changeover time - unfortunately, the housekeeper forgot to put the dishwasher on a quick wash cycle. A new visitor guide book has been compiled, although most of this information is available online. Swiss Cottage is a beautiful grade 2 listed cottage in a fantastic location within walking distance of the beach and Golden Cap, which forms part of the Jurassic Coast. There are lots of things to see and do and good local amenities.

    Overall we enjoyed our holiday stay at Swiss Cottage. It is in a good location for walks down to the sea and coastal walks, which we enjoyed with our dog. The garden is good for people with children / dogs as it is enclosed. We loved the sun room overlooking the garden for chilling out after walks in the evening. The pub round the corner ( Clockhouse Inn ) serves good pub food and means you don't have to get the car out for an evening meal. There were a few small issues with cleanliness. The kitchen bin was very dirty when I removed the bin liner to empty it, and the last visitors cigarette nubs were still in the garden. Also a toy was under the sideboard in the dining room and the floor was not very clean in there. The front door lock was very stiff when entering with the key. The back door was also very stiff to lock from the inside. The settees in the living room were very 'sinking'. However the beds are very comfortable and all the linen very clean. Thank you.
