“What good was doesn't always remain good.”

I am sure that initially the complex with the holiday cottages/apartments from Weston Sands were great. Watching the video and listening to Aby (the daughter) you get an impresion of excellent, well thought out apartments. Probably this was very true. You can also imagine that from the picture of how it was and after what they had done to it. My congratulations: it looked great.

We had the Studio. I am trying to make it short. On arrival we saw that the frontdoor needed a new layer of paint. Once inside we noticed a large piece of the wall with the paint missing: not a very nice sight. On opening the fridge we saw that the advertised freezer was only a freeze compartment in the fridge! And that was full of ice and we coluld't properly use it! If a proprietor would clean and inspect a property, this would have been noticed, wouldn't it?
The room was lit by 5 fluorescent fixtures: not really romantic. There was one more bedside lamp and one with a missing bulb. The next morning the shower rail appeared to be broken. I temporarily fixed it with some sellotape. But if this apartment was inspected .......!
I phoned the owners on arrival, but something must have gone wrong: they didn't come to meet us. I mailed them explaining about shower rail and missing bulb and they were 'terribly sorry' and would fix it. One day later the gardner came with a bulb that didn't work either and brought another one later. He was so impressed by my attempts of mending the rail that he said 'oh, well, that will hold for a while'. When I asked him for a better repair, he promised to come back. He never came and we have not heard anything from him or the owners anymore.
This could have been a good apartment, but I'm afraid that one should keep it up.
Last thought: it was not expensive, but still, one does not expect this, or does one?

Management Response

I would like to thank you for your comments The Studio and all the apartments have all had the outside repainted and are looking pretty good again. The Studio has had a complete revamp with new carpets bed and sofa, there is even a theatre curtain that can be closed to have privacy in the bedroom.

Keys are left in key safes for guests to let themselves in, they are asked to call when they have arrived, so we now they are at the property

With reference to the shower rail and missing bulb, I can only say this is totally out of character, and if we are advised there is anything wrong with the property, we have a maintenance man on hand to deal with such occurrences.

For £35.00 per night the Studio is a great offer and as such is now fully booked up to the beginning of October

Stayed for 3 weeks, it was quiet and peaceful. The single beds were warm and comfy, the heaters were effective too. The cooking facilities were adequate for the simple meals we had. Easy access to Stratford but transport is important. Septic loo gurgles off and on but didn't keep us awake.

We stayed here for 2 nights. It was an easy drive from Heathrow. Beautiful area to stay, close to Stratford-Upon-Avon with some lovely walks and places of interest to see. The Studio was well priced and the facilities were all fine, just as the photographs show.

“Very comfortable stay”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We booked for two nights in the Studio. The mobile phone signal was bad there so we had problems phoning ahead as requested but did finally manage to contact Debbie who told us we had been given a free upgrade to the Cart Shed and explained how to get in.
Later on Debbie came to see if we were alright with the upgrade and we discovered that someone else was in the Studio.
At first we were disappointed but the Cart Shed was lovely and we were very comfortable so we were happy to stay there.
We are thinking of booking again for longer next year and bringing our daughter and son-in-law with us, and perhaps his mother too.
