Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The house is great, comfortable beds and well furnished. The attractive village is a perfect location for visiting the beautiful area around Lake Annecy. We had all we needed for a comfortable stay. The village has all the essentials with a well equipped local store , restaurant and cafes. The cottage is a 15 minute walk from the lakeside. Buses to Annecy run from the village centre, just 5 minutes or so from the cottage. There is also a taxi/tourist boat around the lake which picks up from the shoreline in Menthon St Bernard, The owners supplied all necessary information and instructions. The house was in good order and as described. We would have benefitted from more tea towels (1 isn't really enough if mainly self catering) and cleaning materials for the bathrooms & a few essentials such as washing up liquid and toilet rolls would have been nice but otherwise it was well equipped.

Preis und Leistung passen nicht zusammen

  • 2 of 5

Sehr nettes, altes Haus in ruhiger Lage mit Blick auf das Schloss. In ca. 5 min. erreicht man die Ortsmitte. Menthon St. Bernard ist ein sehr schöner kleiner Ort mit allen erforderlichen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Das Mobiliar ist abgesehen von der Küche in Ordnung. Die Küche ist aus Einzelteilen zusammengestückelt, die Töpfe stehen mehr oder weniger auf dem Fußboden. Auch eine sehr kreative Lösung war die Imitation fehlender Fenstersprossen mit Klebeband.

Größtes Manko war aber die Sauberkeit: Bei Ankunft war die Unterkunft einfach nur dreckig. Der Vermieter bittet anscheinend die Mieter nach eigenem Ermessen, die Wohnung so zu hinterlassen, wie man sie selbst gerne vorfinden möchte. Eine professionelle Reinigung hat anscheinend seit langer Zeit nicht stattgefunden. Wenn man mit dem Kopfkissen an das Kopfende des Bettes kam, fanden sich Spinnweben auf dem Kopfkissen. So in etwa kann man den Zustand des gesamten Hauses beschreiben. Ergebnis: 6!!! Eimer schwarzes Putzwasser, dann konnte man in der Wohnung wohnen. Wir werden künftig trotz der schönen Lage definitiv einen großen Bogen um dieses Haus machen!

Owner's Response: This review was submitted in September. Owners Direct have informed me of the review being posted today (December 7th 2016) The guest stayed there in July. We take complaints about cleanliness very seriously, and take it up with the management company. I'm not sure how to address this 3 months after the stay (or 5 months from the date I received it), when lots of other guests have stayed there since and not raised it as an issue?
