“Stay in West Bay”
Reviewed 7 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

people found this review helpful

The bungalow was comfortable, clean and was well maintained. It suited our needs and was we all felt at home. The carpet sweeper brought back memories of when we first got married and had our own house ( 1977 ) which was a little nostalgic. All in all we would have been quite happy living there, we would immediately update the single glazed windows and doors to new triple glazing as the road noise was loud at night due to having wet weather there was a constant swoosh as vehicles went passed. It would also need a back garden. We were met by the owner ( Dan ) a very informative and amiable man. My husband did seem to annoy him as whilst driving into the property in the darkness he accidentally went over a part of the edge of the lawn. The access was rather tight as we have a large car it was awkward to turn round within the space provided. My husband did apologise and from the start of the holiday he reversed into the entrance from the road. We really loved the bungalow though and found it to be equipped to a reasonable standard. We also felt that having toilets in each bedroom was a good idea ( although when using ours it felt like you were in a confessional booth ( lol ) We would stay again.

“Nostalgic bungalow in lovely Dorset”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

West Bay is gorgeous and Bridport delightful. This bungalow is perfect for exploring them. The standard is old-fashioned (there is a carpet sweeper - I haven't seen one of those in years!) but definitely adequate, the bedrooms are spacious, and there is an unusual arrangement with a separate toilet in each of the two bedrooms as well as wash-basins.
Off road parking is convenient, although the gate is quite narrow for a large car.
The friendly owner lives a few doors down, and there is an excellent Morrisons nearby.
The house was poorly equipped with things like soap and toilet rolls, so you'll want to go shopping as soon as you get there.
Warning - the mattresses are very hard.

Management Response

Thanks for taking time to write a review of your stay, we are glad you appreciated each bedroom being part en suite. With regard to lack of soap/toiletries, we supply initial toilet rolls. We have been letting the bungalow for 23 years and for the first few years supplied soap, often it was not touched, as type toiletries are a personal choice we decided to stop supplying soap. You stated the mattresses were hard, in fact they are high quality contact hotel mattresses - rated as 'firm', at home we use the same mattress ourselves

This bungalow is very spacious & comfortable, contains everything you need. I would quite happily live here.

The weather was very kind to us & we were out & about most days.

Thanks to the owners Dan & Ann Walker who provided me with a bath mat as I have a bad hip.

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay ay West Bay.
