“Comfortable, but in need of cleaning.”
Reviewed 18 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

This is a cozy cottage situated with sea views, with the low ceilings and doorways found in historical homes. The ocean views from the windows are very nice, but the house is definitely a little worse for wear. It is in need of a proper cleaning and interior maintenance. There is a significant amount of mold in the bathroom that needs removed, especially in the shower and window corners. I was able to clean the black mold in the shower with bleach within a few minutes, which is proof that it has not been cleaned properly. The only reason I did that is so I could take a shower without feeling grossed out about it! The (vinyl) sofas in the front room are old and in need of replacement, as they have lost their cushion and are uncomfortable to sit on. The walls would benefit from touch up paint and just general maintenance. So, while the cottage itself is cozy and the sea views are nice, more effort should be taken to make it a clean and comfortable environment to stay in. That is a minimum expectation for a rental such as this.

Management Response

Very sorry you found our cottage not up to your expectations, I’m not sure when you stayed as your arrival and departure date do not match with my bookings. None the less there’s no excuse for the shower being mouldy in the corners and unfortunately in this country during the winter months older properties suffer with condensation especially in the bathrooms so sometimes the corners of the windows do get a little mouldy.
The leather sofas (not vinyl) have now been replaced, we had actually ordered them on Boxing Day and where waiting delivery.
The cottage is usually decorated in the spring and throughout the year we touch up areas when required.
If you had given me a ring while you were staying we could have sorted out some of your complaints other than that am very sorry you had these problems.

“Comfy sea view cottage”
Reviewed 9 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Excellently placed sea view cottage on the outskirts of Southwell village within walking distance of a local pub and 30 minutes of Portland lighthouse, the Lobster Pot and the Pulpit Inn (great Crab sarnies and good beer).

Although only the two of us we found it really comfortable and well heated, well equipped kitchen a much appreciated hot tub, (yep in October) it was really relaxing soaking and watching the stars after a busy day out and about and would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet time away.

Thanks to Mandy for having us stay and returning my house keys I managed to leave behind, much apprecaiated
