Interesting craft building - though a lot of the studios were closed!

Visiting Llantrisant, stopped off at the Model House - a collective of local craft workshops.
Interesting local crafts and arets on sale - though a real shame that many of the workshops were closed during the school holidays!
Still the open workshops had friendly helpfull staff.

I had done my homework on this area before we visited so I knew it was somewhere I wanted to visit, was really surprised how many different workshops/ shops there was in this building, did make a few purchases, lots of the workshops were closed probably with it being a Saturday when we visited

Not great.

We’ve tried a few times, searching for gifts. It’s a strange dark place. A bit smelly and confused. Staff unfriendly. Wouldn’t return.

Becky crams her shop with so many unusual and creative gifts that there's so much choice and I always end up coming away with several thing a but still wanting more. She's also a lovely chatty girl who makes you feel she's got all the time in the world to natter.

Unfortunately this was closed on the Monday. We would really have liked to visit, especially as it was pouring with rain. It appeared to be interesting when looking through the windows. Obviously my rating doesn't rate the inside of the craft centre.

I have read the other reviews and have come to the conclusion that my visit was definitely not of the usual standard. My visit was on Friday 9th December. I had selected an item and approached the counter to request another one as I needed a pair, The staff there were in a conversation ( casual not work related) with someone, they continued while I patiently waited until a lady eventually looked in my direction, I made my request and she just replied 'no' and rummaged under the counter. I assumed that as the answer was so brief she was checking stock. She then looked up, saw that I was still standing there and told me rather brusquely that she had already told me that she only had one. I think that customer relations training is needed and have decided that I will not again be travelling 50 miles to visit the Model House. There are other venues to purchase similar items, hopefully with staff who do not make you feel as if they are doing you a favour by serving you. Such a shame as the crafts are very good.
