“Dated bungalow and make sure you have plenty of £1 coins for electricity”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

Poor or no communication from the owner, he did not reply to emails or telephone calls. No one to greet us on arrival or he left any instructions. The bungalow was not easy to find as the number of the bungalows is not in sequence so make sure you arrive in day light. The bungalow definitely needs a bit of updating. There was no supply of water, plumbing problems when we arrived. The plumber Petr was kindly redirected us to another bungalow while he sorted out No 62. The plumbing problem was more serious hence we had to stay at this temporary bungalow. You think electricity is the basic necessity will be part of the accommodation cost. We only found out when the electricity was cut out after 30 mins on arrival The owner was not contactable fortunately the plumber left me his number! Electricity is extra apparently you have to slot £1 coins in the meter provided fortunately we had some between us, you need £15 per evening! I definitely do not recommend this accommodation - electricity and wifi are extra (you can pay £6.95 per day but not worth it as the speed is very slow)

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
Overall condition of the property Bedding & mattresses
Kitchen & utensils Bathroom cleanliness
Other facilities & amenities Service
Liked best: sea view from the window
Liked least: to find out electricity is extra!

Thank you for your review, we act as Agents for the accommodation and whom you made your booking through.
Trip Advisor is a superb tool for the Holiday Accommodation but only if used correctly, nobody should be able to use TRIP ADVISOR to attempt to harm a Person/Company's business which in this case is what you are trying to do. When making a review all the facts should be truthful and not exaggerated.
First of all .
You were not in contact with the owner, you contacted maintenance and ourselves. You telephoned ourselves on 29 December and left a message, we responded by text to you at 4.31pm, we did not receive any emails from you except prior to arrival asking for early check in which we advised that we could not guarantee due to clients departing on your arrival day. You duly turned up early and the bungalow was not ready for occupation, you were advised to come back around 4pm which is the normal access time. Unfortunately the previous occupants caused damage to the the bungalow which meant that repairs had to be made, the damage so far has cost the owner over £1000. The damage was irrepairable on the day and Peter the maintenance person had no alternative to ask you to stay at other accommodation which you accepted.
NONE of the bungalows include electricity and all are operated by £1.00 coin meters, this is advised on the Holiday Lettings website and in all the information forwarded to you. We are not sure how you contacted the owner to talk to him regarding the electric? he has no recollection of your call.
As the agent for the accommodation and bearing in mind that we bring over 5000 persons per year to these bungalows we have never known any person have a problem with the electric and certainly not £15.00 per night, the tariff is extremely economical.
NONE of our accommodations offer WIFI so not sure why you are advising that we charged you a price of £6.95 per day as we do not have this facility and have certainly not collected any monies from you whatsoever
All in all we are extremely disappointed to have received your review and would have preferred if you would have followed the procedure and to contact us first with your complaint, as of today we can confirm that we have not received any correspondence from you whatsoever
We would be pleased to hear from you if you wished to discuss further.

“Never come here again”
Reviewed January 2, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

people found this review helpful

The plumbing wasn't working when we arrived, the owner did not respond to any of our emails. We found out he was in Majorca upon arrival and a handyman was trying to fix the water so we could have a shower. After a 5 hour drive, this wasn't the best start but what's more, the damage was so bad we had to be moved to a different chalet/caravan and then you had to pay in £1 coins for the electricity to work. This had not been stated at all by the owner or make aware in the rental. The place outside looked quite worn down unlike the beautiful pictures in the holiday rental. Each £1 coin only kept the electricity on for 40 minutes or so and if we had no £1 coins we would have to eat, sleep and live in the dark...
After a 2 day trip you can imagine how many £1 coins you have used just to be able to read a book in your own 'supposed' home.

There were no directions or signs to help navigate to the National Park and you the water issue began in the 2nd chalet/caravan so you were forced to have an icy mental patient style shower.

In short, never come here again, if not for the warm company... this trip would have been a disaster.

Thank you for your review, we act as Agents for the accommodation, we are not aware of your stay in Bungalow 62 unless you are part of the party who arrived on 29 December and who have already wrote a review on TRIP ADVISOR.
Nobody should be able to use TRIP ADVISOR to harma Person/Company's business which in this case is what you are trying to do. When making a review all the facts should be truthful and not exaggerated.
If you were part of the same party then the owner was not in Majorca, you did not contact the owner, you contacted maintenance and ourselves. we received a telephone call /message on 29 December we responded by text to the number at 4.31pm. The party asked for early check in which we advised that we could not guarantee due to clients departing on your arrival day. You duly turned up early and the bungalow was not ready for occupation, you were advised to come back around 4pm which is the normal access time. Unfortunately the previous occupants caused damage to the the bungalow which meant that repairs had to be made, the damage so far has cost the owner over £1000. The damage was irrepairable on the day and Peter the maintenance person had no alternative to ask you to stay at other accommodation which you accepted.
NONE of the bungalows include electricity and all are operated by £1.00 coin meters, this is advised on the Holiday Lettings website - following is extract from website 'Electricity is provided by a coin operated meter which takes £1.00 coins'. and in all the information forwarded to you - following is extract from booking conditions ' GAS/ and CENTRAL HEATING ARE INCLUDED IN THE COST, ELECTRICITY IS PROVIDED BY METERS WHICH TAKE £1 COINS'.
As the agent for the accommodation and bearing in mind that we bring approximately over 5000 persons per year to these bungalows we have never known any person have a problem with the electric and certainly not £15.00 per night, the tariff is extremely economical.
Directions to the Park and accommodation again is given in the instructions, the park is situated in Snowdonia National Park, so would depend on where you wanted to visit?
We are not aware of any issues with the alternative accommodation offered and have no knowledge about a shower, heating and hot water is provided by gas so not sure if you were using the shower incorrectly - maybe?
All in all we are extremely disappointed to have received your review and would have preferred if you would have followed the procedure and to contact us first with your complaint, as of today we can confirm that we have not received any correspondence from you whatsoever
We would be pleased to hear from you if you wished to discuss further.
Its rather strange though that based on the same accommodation from people who stayed in Bungalow 62 after your departure that they had a great time and gave a rating of 4 out of 5?

“Lovely views, comfortable accommodation- weird water!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

The bungalow was just right for 4 people. Large, homely kitchen with all mod cons, a dining table and patio door out onto the deck. Comfortable sitting room and bedrooms and clean bathroom.

The views are just stunning. Couldn't ask for a better location.

2 things to be aware of. The water is a weird yellow colour. A lady in the local shop told us it had been tested and was safe to drink but it had a very metallic taste and we ended up drinking bottled water. It also looked as though the toilet hasn't been flushed when you arrive but this is due to the colour of the water. Also you will need several pound coins for the electricity meter. We had not been told this and it would have been nice to have been prepared as I rarely carry a number of pound coins around with me and it's 6 miles from a shop.

Other than that it was a very enjoyable stay and I would highly recommend it.

Hello and many thanks for your posting, pleased that you had a good time and are able to visit again at sometime.
Would just like to point out some important points, the water can be discoloured at times but it is perfectly safe to use, this is pointed out on the confirmation and within the booking information/conditions.
With regards to the electric meter, this is advertised on all listings on the Holiday Lettings website and on the Holidays Aberdovey website, also it is explained in the booking information /conditions. The neares vilage is not 66 miles away but in fact 2.5 miles which is Aberdovey
Hope that this may help future holiday makers? Independent Holidays

Went to 62 for the bank holiday weekend with the family, two kids 5 and 22 months. The place was clean and welcoming, required utensils and crockery was available.The view was to die for, the chalet was located at the hill top over looking the sea. Pamphlets were there for more to do with the kids......had a wonderful coastal drive around snowdonia and the weather was good allowing for more activities. But we just enjoyed sitting on the deck with a glass of wine when the kids went to bed....beautiful absolutely beautiful.
