Response from AmandaCassel, Owner at Exquisite Cottage 20

Thank you for your review - we so appreciate constructive criticism but are very saddened that you did not notify us of your concerns whilst you were experiencing them. Most of the issues you had, would have been adressed with immediate effect- to this end we provide guests with an information booklet, with contact numbers of management and the owner. We have done a full stock count and confirm that there are 8 meatplates,8 fishplates, and 8 serving bowls There are 6 teacups and saucers, and 6 mugs. There 6 red wine glasses and 6 white wine glasses. We note one champagne glass and one meat knife is missing. They have been replaced. Management could have rectified this immediately. The dishwasher is disconnected - we are sensitive to water constraints- the cottage is serviced daily though. Not sure how it would have assisted you with your requirements, as to run a whole load for items you seemed to need immediately, would not have been timeous. Again, management would have been delighted to resolve any Dstv concerns you had during your stay. Belvidere Manor's wifi is excellent - we have never had a complaint. Regarding the soap - whilst it may look like it should be in a dispenser , because of it's design ..it is not a dispenser soap. As per its label, it is for hand, body and shampoo use - specifically selected to be multipurpose and is imported from Germany . We do not supply bars of soap for hygienic reasons. But again,if that was your request we would have provided a bar of soap immediately. The fridge is a full sized AEG and we are sorry that it was not big enough. The cottage is indeed newly decorated and refurbished, and it is a pity that you have chosen to complain about the smaller issues, that we truly could have resolved.
