Re: Hatchers Manor Richmond (Tasmania)
The inside of the cottage appeared somewhat rundown and in need of considerable maintenance, although the outside appeared to be freshly painted. On entering, the first impression was that of mustiness. The drapes were beginning to fall apart and the curtain cords were either broken, not working or working to draw one of the two curtains. The privacy curtains were scrunched up not evenly spread along track or caught up in main drapes, giving the windows a very untidy appearance. The entrance door was very difficult to close and lock. As the door had glass panels without curtains there was a lack of privacy in the main living area.
In the bedroom, the doona cover under the outer cover did not lead us to believe that it was freshly washed but made us wish we had brought our own linen. The top sheet had a hole in it.
The kitchen utensils were very limited and basic. The chopping knife was extremely blunt, the frying pan was warped and therefore difficult to cook with on a flat element. Although the accommodation was advertised for a total of six guests, there were only three mismatched bowls to be found. The kitchen appeared to be fitted out with makeshift left overs.
The grounds immediately surrounding the cottage were either weeds that were (at least) mown occasionally or bare dirt.
Given the attractive photo of the outside of the cottage advertised on the website, we were considerably disappointed in the accommodation and felt very let down for our overnight stay. Most of the above mentioned problems would take very little expense to considerably improve the cottage. We have let all our friends and family know of our experience and will post this review online.
