Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanckes house is an unbelievable House. We come year after year. There is nowhere like it.

The Coastguard Cottage is so close to the sea. I can lie in bed and stare. Stunning.

The Villa is ideal for golfers. Have drink in the Hotel Bar and wander off to the first tee. Really comfortable.

Awful customer service

  • 1 of 5

Back in August we booked a weekend for March to stay at Thankes House with a group of friends. We paid our deposit of 50% of the total amount. On the 15th January we received a cheque along with a letter telling us they have made a mistake with the cost and that they can no longer accommodate us. Very little apology, no offer of honouring our booking (which it states on their website they do), or offering an alternative.

Terrible customer service.

Owner's Response: I don't know how to respond to this. I did make a mistake with the pricing and apologised in writing offering the new price. She was very aggressive and threatened legal action before we could even compromise. Very unpleasant person and glad we did not take them.

Thanckes House

  • 4 of 5

Amazing location, unbelievable views! The private heated indoor pool is fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The main bedroom is lovely, lovely size, conservatory is lovely too, and the living room is lovely, and the entrance and stairs. The rest of the house is very dated, a real flashback to the 70s and 80s, needs updating! Would make such a difference with new curtains, new furniture. Had a lovely stay here though! Loved the pool!

over priced for the condition of house...

  • 2 of 5

thanks house was a nice place to stay with the golf course only a short walk away and the beach on the door step. the problems start when it rains. as we found out.... the master bedroom has a leak in the main windows which in turn drips down into the sitting room and makes the sofa wet as well as the walls... there is also some tiles broken in the pool area which a small child could cut the feet or hand on as the tiles are ceramic and there is no Jacuzzi in the pool area as it has been taken out.... we did report all of the problem we found in the house but were told they did know about them but would do anything about it.

all in all it was a nice place to stay and we had a good family holiday.

Owner's Response: Dear Mr Smith Thanks for your comments which I believe are a bit unfair. The window did leak which was reported on the weekend. Almost impossible to get a window company in straightway. This problem was now been sorted . The Jacuzzi is being replaced and again these things take a little time . Im glad you enjoyed your holiday.
