Lack of information, TV inoperable & bedroom size

  • 1 of 5

The place was clean but badly presented. The information folder only contained information on security access numbers, TV operating instructions (which were outdated, as TV had recently been changed) and the owner's mobile number. I was unable to enjoy a trouble free stay because of the time spent trying to resolve the issues directly related to a non working TV, lack of instructions re the oven and washing machine. There were no specific instructions re refuse. I arrived on Friday and the TV was not fixed until 7pm on Monday.

The ironing board is very unstable - the legs are no wider than the board & no cradle for the iron. This resulted in the iron toppling off the board.

The bedrooms are arranged such that the master bedroom contains two single beds whilst the smaller bedroom the double bed. I suffered several bruises to my legs caused by the protruding sharp end of the double bed, as there was little room to move round or open the cupboard doors. (clock radio no instructions & inoperable).

The fridge had been set to a high setting & fresh salad items were frozen and damaged.

There were no instructions for exiting through security gates (without first walking round & opening with access number) - perhaps the unlabelled device left on the bench may have been relevant. However by this time it was easier to walk rather than waste more time on lengthy delays waiting for replies to mobile calls.

A reply to an offer of £100 and subsequent texts to the owner have not been received to date.

Definitely the worst rental I have experienced although it could have been good.

Owner's Response: Some people are impossible to please..... There was indeed an issue with the TV reception when the lady arrived on Friday night. I returned her call & tried to give guidance over the phone to possible issues but was not able to fix the problem - I did indicate that there was both a DVD player & Apple TV box to provide viewing but this was rebuffed. I drove to the house on Saturday and fixed the TV, gave her instructions on the rubbish & showed her how to operate the washing machine. The TV worked all day Sunday but sadly ceased to get reception on Monday morning again. A serviceman was called and fixed the problem the same day - a problem with the dish due to the recent storm. The bedrooms are arranged the way they are (which is exactly as they are shown on the website) in order to be able to get two single beds in the second room, otherwise it would only sleep 3 - not useful for most family stays. The fridge temperature is easily adjusted using the dial inside if you feel it is too cold. The codes to gain access to the gates from the outside are provided when the booking is confirmed. I have never felt it necessary to provide written instructions for exiting the property as there are two GIANT buttons on the wall next to the gates which you push to exit or the key button on the intercom system by the front door does exactly the same thing & there are people coming & going all day using exactly these buttons. The last sentence is a complete untruth..... when the TV didn't work for the first night I offered her compensation of £100 to which I received a tirade requesting £200. I paid a sum in the middle at the same time as the release of the damage deposit & had a text from the lady to say she had received it in her bank account. I am always more than happy to help in any way and if there are problems I do my very best to resolve issues as quickly as possible, I feel very disappointed that Jean did not enjoy her stay. I feel in this instance it was not a great experience for either of us.

last minute New year break

  • 5 of 5

We are grateful to have been able to book relatively last minute for a New Forest. The sun was shining throughout our stay enabling the New Forest to shine in its splendour. The townhouse was perfect for us - family of 4 with a dog. It is small but perfect for a few days relaxation - perhaps if the weather had not been great it may have seemed a little tight, but we spent our time outdoors and loved our stay. The was clean and comfortable with all the necessary amenities. Karen was quick in responding to the few questions we did have. Only thing to note is parking is tight - we had two cars - one can park in the small space in front of the house, the other just in front of it and close to the wall to allow cars to pass...worked for us as we had small cars but may be tight for larger cars.

Ringwood was a convenient location - have a meal at the Noisy Lobster round the corners. On NY eve we spent a lovely evening at the local pub with live music and a great atmosphere.

We would definitely return to this delightful townhome on the edge of the Forest.

Very happy with our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us to explore the new forest and take a trip to the Isle of Wight. The property is in a great location, easy access to shops and walking distance to the local supermarket. Really enjoyable stay. Thanks

Nicely located property with reasonable quality fittings

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week in August. The property is located in a small quiet gated community, is well equipped and has reasonable quality fittings. There is a lovely courtyard seating area which is quite private. The property has its own parking but there is restricted space to manoeuvre although we managed all right with an estate car. A couple of minutes walk to shops, restaurants and bars. Well located for touring the area especially the New Forest although main roads can be very busy. It was a really pleasant place to stay. The property was clean and has been reasonably maintained.

Fabulous home, great location, well equipped - thoroughly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is located just behind Ringwood's High Street. You can stroll out to the great range of pubs, restaurants, cafe's, coffee shops, charity shops or beauty salons that Ringwood has to offer. A good sized Waitrose and Sainsburys are a 5 minute walk away, so everything is literally on your doorstep. I went away with my three girls aged 14, 15 and 20 and there were plenty of shops to interest them and Ringwood felt safe to browse around.

The house itself felt pretty new. It was clean, well-maintained and a pleasure to live in. A couple of things needed attention and Karen quickly came along to help and resolve those issues. She was very helpful and attentive. The en-suite and main bathroom functioned very well as did all the other household gadgets. It did feel like Karen had thought of everything you might need and we lacked for nothing - there was even a Nescafe Gusto Machine. We had a stunning week of proper summer weather and often sat out in the courtyard garden for meals or coffee. There is an amazing electric awning for shade (if you need it). The dishwasher was great, as was the washing machine (I found an instruction manual online) and the wifi was as good as ours at home with decent reception, which my kids can't live without! There was secure parking for 2 small cars, or one larger one and the house is in a safe security gated cul-de-sac.

We went on the New Forest Tour (open-top bus) and visited the New Forest Wildlife Park. The bus was very comfy and informative. The wildlife Park wasn't that big but on a blisteringly hot day was just what we needed. We stopped off in Lyndhurst on the way home - another pretty village worth an hour or two of browsing.

All-in-all a lovely holiday, plenty to do on our doorstep and I would happily rent this house out again. It is fabulously located for the New Forest attractions or the amazing coast nearby. We had a lovely time at Boscombe beach, near Bournemouth and at it's town centre.

You won't be disappointed :)
