After reading the reviews, I expected something quite special so was very disappointed when we arrived at the property.
The room was drab and dark. There was a stain on the ceiling where the roof had leaked at some time. Although the bed was comfortable, there was only one thin pillow each. A summer weight duvet was provided and as it was still quite chilly at night, it was fortunate that a thin fleece blanket had been stored in the wardrobe. The tea tray was adequate, although the edge of the small table on which it was placed was very dusty and the room didn't feel particularly clean. Also, it was not possible to plug in the kettle while it was on the table - the only available plug socket meant that we had to put the kettle on the floor to boil. The shower room was very small; there was no window and the extractor fan did not work. On arrival, we wanted to take a short nap in the late afternoon but there was so much noise from downstairs that it was impossible. We could clearly hear conversations in the kitchen below, cupboard doors banging and the radio was loud. When we used the shower room, we could hear the conversation of the couple in the next room. The property is adjacent to quite a busy main road. We had spent previous nights in superb B&Bs in Gloucestershire and Devon and paid less than the premium rates that Elm Tree Cottage Charge.
Response from hotel
Well a very lengthy review raising so many points which therefore deserves a lengthy reply. I’ll try to get to them all. The ceiling stain, about 3”, arose recently due to strong winds which shifted a roof tile allowing heavy rain to be blown under the eaves. This was repaired leaving the mark still to be fixed. It has now dried out and is awaiting a dab of paint. I’ll do that tomorrow. Drab and dark is rather subjective view. The room faces directly south in an elevated un-overlooked position with 180 degree panoramic view over countryside. Lots of guests say wow! Admittedly if the weather is dull and cloudy, then the room, as any room reflects this. For the past month all beds have had the duvets changed from 13 tog to 9.5
spring weight. We will be changing these for 4.5 tog summer weight in a month or so as the night temperatures dictate ensuring everyone is comfortable all year round, however a blanket is there for those that want something heavier during the night during this seasonal change. It is so hard for us to get this right for everyone so we are glad you found it
useful and that the bed was comfortable. My wife Bev does the dusting and cleaning. She is mortified and mystified that you found some dust and you felt that the room wasn’t clean. Her reason for being is to clean, dust, hoover and check for spiders and cobwebs and that I do everything correctly.
There is no one to blame, it is just us. Most other reviewers rate our cleanliness very highly. The bathroom extractor is silent, and the fan is located in the loft about 6 feet from the room you were in so if you were expecting to hear the whir of blades you won’t. Regarding the noise below during the afternoon we are sorry for the hubbub. Our Son and his wife were
expecting a baby and all our family came round for about an hour or so and talking quite excitedly. She has had a girl. The bathroom is back to back to another bathroom with a well-insulated wall between. This is the first time in 13 years of running our home as a B&B that this type of noise has been mentioned. All other walls separating rooms are over 2ft thick so no noise except what passes through two sets of heavy fire doors. You say we are adjacent to a busy main road. This is about 60 yards away so we are quietly located. Only a week or so ago a guest complained about the noise being awoken to the sound of birdsong (he said jokingly).We wish we could charge premium rates. Alas we have to market price against competitors in the local area of which there are many. We are slightly less than most. We are proud of our offering and the high standards that most of our guests recognise so we are sorry it disappointed you. Lastly, you stayed with us for two nights and did not even ask for extra pillows. We have cupboards full of them. Our pillows are so soft and plump that we stopped putting two out as they were usually on the floor come the morning.
