“Great mini-break”
Reviewed December 4, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

A two bedroomed terraced house with all the amenities you could want. Very centrally located in the town with shops and pubs with good food on the doorstep. Everything that you could want for a great break was there - even a bottle of wine and provisions to welcome us. Brilliant!

Management Response
Sep 17, 2012
We are always keen to take on board guests feedback, which is very important to us but in this case we believe Mrs Barbers comments are wholly unjustified..
 
Hillcrest is managed by Blue Lagoon Cottages on behalf of the Owner and is one of our most popular Cottages with many guests returning 2 or 3 times a year and the guest comment book is full of compliments. 
 
Mrs Barber stayed at Hillcrest in June and despite contacting her a few days after arrival and receiving no negative feed back it came as a surprise that she left 2 pages full of what appeared to us to be quite trivial comments about their stay at Hillcrest. The Owners housekeeper had also enquired if all was well during their stay and received a positive answer.
 
The Owners have taken on board  Mrs Barber’s views about  lack of food storage space but most cupboards have always been kept empty for guests use. However they would like to point out that Hillcrest is not their holiday home and everything in Hillcrest is for the guests use and merely helps to maintain a home from home environment, including many items of Wedgwood china, both ornamental and cookware..  
 
The TV is more than adequate for the size of the sitting room and the Owner has never had any comments about this before. A very substantial library of Books and DVD’s is also offered in the property.
 
The Owner apologizes if any cutlery and cooking pans were not clean. The owner normally cleans herself and follows a high standard of procedures, however her housekeeper cleaned on this occasion and since the Barbers stay the Owner has instructed her housekeeper to double check the cutlery draw and cooking pans on every clean, as indeed the Owner does.

However, the specific comment in the Barbers long list of complaints left at the property about a pan in which food turned red was due to the guests use of the supplied red palm oil and not dirt in the pan.
 
The high quality welcome food hamper (containing local produce including wine cheese jam bread cake free range eggs and chocolates )  provided by the Owner is always Vegetarian friendly (the Owner is Vegetarian) and can be made vegan friendly if notice is given. No notice was given by the Barbers as to either dietary requirement. The Owner is upset by the remark that  the high quantity Wedgwood china provided is ‘like grandma’s house’ , although we feel  the remark is irrelevant, as was the comment about how many cups and saucers they counted.. Such quality china is not normally provided in a holiday home and we feel Mrs Barbers comments are purely personal. The Guest book actually contains many comments about the fact that the property feels like home from home. Comments about the fluffy cushions are again personal and in our view should not detract from an enjoyable holiday in a welcoming Cottage.
 
As for Blue Lagoon overcharging The Barbers. I made a typing error in an email sent, which I apologised for at the time. An amount of £123 which was due for payment was typed as £132 and as a dyslexic I find Mrs Barber’s comments very prejudiced. 
 
Its worth noting that the Barbers damaged the blind in the bedroom. and the bed cover and throw were both badly stained with what appeared to be dried food and had to be carefully laundered after their visit. The housekeeper reported the property was left unusually dirty. Two lots of uncleared dog excrement were noted in the yard during the Barbers stay by the Owner when delivering extra fuel for the woodburner as the weather was inclement. The housekeeper had to clean the yard extra carefully as a result..
  
Mrs Barber’s remarks about price are not justified by local comparisons an analysis carried out recently shows Hillcrest pricing structure to be in line with properties of the same standard and all in all are felt to be an unjustified attempt to receive a refund .
