“Lovely location, house needs a good clean, furniture needs to be replaced”
Reviewed September 15, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

Excellent location - lovely views and close to the beach. House is very tired and needs a thorough clean. Several stains on the lounge carpet. We had 2 young children but the floors were so dirty we kept them in shoes. Matresses in downstairs bedroom were very lumpy and thin- really awful. The drawers in the middle bedroom were coming off the runners and difficult to use. The kitchen was well eqipped but many of the items were dirty. We actually spent some time cleaning the cupboards as they were so dirty

Date of stay: June 2011

Management Response
Nov 6, 2011
Thank you for taking time to write a review on Borthwen. We welcome all constructive feedback relating to the cottage.

The property is cleaned to a high standard after every guest and so I can only apologise that it wasn’t cleaned to that standard for your stay. We have addressed this issue with our cleaners.

We have replaced the mattresses downstairs with new ones and we are in the process of buying a new 3-piece suite. We are also having a new carpet fitted in the lounge. Any items that need replacing are done so every year.

We would just like to say that although every effort is made to maintain the high standards of Borthwen due to the high volume of guests that stay with us wear and tear is inevitable. The important thing to us is that we are committed to replacing anything when necessary.
