- Stayed at newlands cottage for a week from 17 July 2021
Such a shame about this cute Cottage which is in a great location and could be absolutely lovely with beautiful views etc
But sadly the cottage is very tired and needs a lot of DIY doing and the cottage was NOT clean considering we are in a pandemic ,
Shelves in both bathrooms need repairing we were unable to put toiletries on the shelf as they fall off into the sink,
Toilet seat In Both bathrooms need sorting I almost fell off the toilet due to the seat not fitted correctly
The bedroom with the two single beds smells so bad with damp that we could smell it when we first arrived in the property and had the keep the bathroom extractor fan on to elevate the smell,
Curtain tie back holders hanging off the wall in main bedroom.
Curtains don’t fit the windows throughout the house and in the main bedroom they are so bad at the door the bright security light shines through down the sides of the curtains, hence when the outside light is on at night (all night) it was not great hence poor sleep.
The pillows on the beds are poor and need replacing and the bedding looks old, I was so pleased I took my own pillows.
The mattress is stained and I had a shock when I had to move the bed to find an earring I dropped - the filth under the bed frame was terrible,
Lots of cobwebs in the property very poor in the main bedroom down the wall near bedside table and in the little window bay considering the cleaners had supposedly been in that day , even the
furniture in lounge had biscuit crumbs on the sofa.
The refrigerator had not been cleaned (salad tray) dirty and kitchen was not equipped with enough pots and pans and what was there needs replacing as a few of the bowls/plates have been chipped for sometime that they have discoloured.
Dirty kitchen floor
I was unable to sweep the floor as the floor brush was broken so obviously the cleaners hadn’t used it.hence why I felt grubby under foot.
And we were plagued with flies i suppose I can understand with the hot weather we had during the week, but possibly have a fly zapper in place or something to swat the flies or maybe leave fly spray.
No hairdryer or cooling fan both would have made a difference if mentioned in your property description.
Would we stay at new lands again ?NO Not In the condition it’s in, but hopefully in the future if things above have been sorted. IMPROVED .
