We were a total of 8 people at the cottage for three days and the following review is an input from everyone who traveled. Overall it was an okay experience for all of us, but we unanimously agree that we will not be pursuing this place again not will recommend to our friends ..…
Response from Patrick:
I am grateful Omar brings these issues into a forum as they do need to be aired for future guests. 1. I assure you the linens on beds are freshly laundered for every guest. I'm aware of the stains mentioned, however these are permanent blemishes and in no way reflect thier hygiene. There is also a stain on the carpet upstairs, however the carpet has been vacuumed. 2. This is my dwelling, not a hotel room, so evidence of my living here are to be expected - thus the laundry hamper next to the washing machine may have laundry in it, I confess and apologize to Omar if this was disturbing to him. 3. This is definitely a rustic country retreat and not suitable for urbanites that expect the same creature comforts of their downtown condos or hotels. That said, when operated properly, the Woodstove delivers plenty of heat to maintain a reasonable and steady 18 degrees throughout the house - however, this is still not t-shirt weather. Slippers and warm indoor clothes were recommended in our first communications for this reason. And, then there is the furnace to keep the chill off when sleeping. It's not for everyone, but then again neither is country living. 4. With respect to my visiting during Omar's stay, I did clearly say that I would come by and stoke the fire on my way to work at 7 am New Year's Day as a courtesy, and he seemed to accept the suggestion (obviously Omar either forgets or did not comprehend this aspect of our conversation). The only other visit was around their checkout time. Please know that I have the utmost respect for the privacy of my guests. 5. Since the writing of my initial review of Omar I have discovered that I am missing some bath towels and a champaign glass (which I found broken in the recycling) and they helped themselves to some shop towels I kept in a cupboard which they used as kitchen paper towels - the whole roll - and no mention was made of either.
