Good in parts

The property is an excellent size with ample room for big groups. The kitchen is pleasant with all you need, the dining area is also great for sitting over a lazy breakfast or evening meal with friends and a nice bottle (or two!) of wine . All bedrooms are a good size. Outside parking for two or three small cars is available on the drive. The WiFi is very good in the lounge area and downstairs generally, it drops off the higher up the property you get to a point that there is no signal at all on the top floor.

We found the property was generally clean, as was the bedding and bathrooms. One notable exception was the bottom of the oven that was well overdue for attention and a very deep cleaning.

The property decor includes some funky fittings and art which is a nice original touch and so much better than the beige interiors of other holiday accommodation. That said, the property could do with decorating. Some areas are well overdue for a freshen up and a lick of paint. Some of the utensils in the kitchen and especially the pots and pans have seen much better days and very much need replacing. The bed linen too could also do with renewing.

We had issues with the booking procedure. Confirming receipt of our payments and general matters connecting to the booking were painful and slow which made the process unnecessarily worrying. Collecting the keys on arrival from the Sams restaurant in town was convenient for the owner but unwelcoming for guests with the waitress understandably occupied with other things - our questions about the property were just met with a 'sorry I don't know' shrug of the shoulders.

The location of the property is great for exploring the local area with the Eden Project, Charlestown and several other attractions within easy reach. Fowey itself is also lovely with plenty of amenities, pubs, restaurants and galleries.

So to sum up, we had a nice time at Samsnet but thought that it would have been greatly improved with a more attention to service and the overall property decorative condition which lets the experience down. We felt the property seemed to be on the fringe of other areas of the owners business and so little time is made available for it and the paying guests. There seems to be a sense of letting the property manage itself or be managed by the cleaner/Sams restaurant staff/other personnel who do not have the time to dedicate to guests.

Location

From the Owner

We built this house in 2004 after having the perfect opportunity of buying some land. It was a perfect place to bring our family up, with exceptional schools, beautiful beaches and only a stroll to our restaurants for work. The children learnt to Sail, windsurf and spent most evenings on the beach pier jumping and fishing. What isn't perfect about that for an upbringing! Still need convincing about what a beautiful place Samsenet in Fowey is ? Watch http://paramoreproductions.co.uk/portfolio-item/property-tour-samsenet/ www.samscornwall.co.uk
