“We’ve been staying at this cottage every summer for nearly 20 years and after several improvements over many years, the standard isn’t as good now : no change of sheets or linen even though we stayed two weeks; garden furniture not as comfortable as the previous seats (one even broke), lack of comfort of mattresses in single beds room, lack of outside space because of huge garden « box » with about a dozen cacti plants, no bath carpet, just a few hangers for 4 guests (we left those for children’s clothes after buying some items for family).”
In the kitchen, basic equipment not renewed : one oven dish (when there used to be several), no more cups (only mugs), ONLY TWO TEA SPOONS (we bought some, but took them with us). After last year’s stay, we mentioned that the fridge needed checking regularly (too much ice which prevented door from closing properly). This wasn’t done.
When arriving at the cottage, over the years, we used to have a bottle of wine, flowers, scones, clotted cream (even tea sometimes): this year, only a bottle of wine.
The price was increased and the alibi of Covid meant we had to arrive later, which meant a small part of the first day.
I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but we were slightly disappointed this year.
Best regards. Patrick CURTAUD
