Great stay shame about being wrongfully charged

  • 3 of 5

This home is perfect for a large group of friends with young children or families. The layout works well, the pool area clean and over all an ideal home to spend days around without even having to get in your car. The kids were secure in the gardens and the kitchen had everything we needed. The only real shame to this stay was that when we checked out they claimed we had made a mark on a side table which no one was aware of. Furthermore the mark was then charged to us and no consideration that the cleaners or previous guests themselves may have caused it. We were 100% set on booking next year and now we are hesitating as to if we should. If you do book here I would suggest taking photographs of absolutely everything when checking in. Otherwise you may get wrongfully stung too. We wish we had taken photographs, as much of a nuisance this may have been but we are now being charged a very, hefty price. Not fair play. And such a sour taste left to such a wonderful weekend.

Owner's Response: Please accept my apologies for this very late response, but I have only recently been made aware of this review.I am sorry that you feel you were wrongly charged. On guests departure the housekeeper checks each room for maintenance and cleaning issues. This is then documented and passed to the relevant cleaning personnel. Following cleaning, the housekeeper checks once more to ensure all is well for the incoming guests. In this instance, the damage, which was very noticeable, was found on departure, the guest notified immediately and a quote for repair obtained from a reputable company, and a copy emailed to the client who had booked the stay. This amount was then deducted from the damage deposit and the remainder returned. We know that accidents can happen and that, in large parties of people, the client who books is not always aware that an accident has occurred. We would have no reason to make inappropriate deductions from a damage deposit and it is not something that we have ever done. Thank you for your comments and I trust my response has clarified things.
