Nice chalet but read "The Rules"

  • 3 of 5

Whilst the good things about this chalet are that it is in a lovely position with marvellous views and well equipped sad to say the bottom apartment for two people had a constant musty smell.

Any persons hiring this chalet should read with care "The House Rules".

The owner meets you and takes over an hour going over these, the first rule being never to enter the house with your shoes on. The owner provides previously used mules which may well have been washed but I would suggest taking your own slippers if you wish to comply.

There are photos on the doors of the kitchen cabinets of the order you are expected to keep the China, glass etc and even the wardrobes have pictures of the arrangement of the hangers and extra blankets expected on departure.

This means you are constantly having to make sure nothing is out of place.

This does not make for a relaxing holiday.

We even had an email from the owns telling us that a couple of fruit stains on a damask table cloth had been hard to remove. I suggest a plastic one would be better then .

Owner's Response: An anonymous review with this content is difficult to handle, since the person who booked the house for the whole party wrote us after the stay "many thanks again to a another wonderful holiday in Switzerland". Some members of the group were not satisfied with their stay. We weren't satisfied with them either. The complaint regarding the 2-room apartment with its "musty smell" could not be confirmed by the next guests. In fact, the people who stayed in this apartment just the week after gave us a glowing, five star review on another website. The anonymous commenter advised us to buy a dehumidifyer for this apartment, what we did on the very same day they left the house. However, this appliance wasn't necessary, because *airing* the apartment was enough to keep a nice atmosphere, which the next guest did confirm. Yes, we have a thing we call "house rules" and we expect our guests to know them and to follow them. They are mentioned on the website and are explained with the lease agreement. People coming in our home will find neat and tidy things ; is it too much to expect from them to let those things at the same place at the end of their stay ? People coming in our home will find a nice and clean place as well ; is it too much to drop one's shoes in the hall and not to walk with dirty shoes in the house ? If a relaxing holiday means no respect whatsoever for the house, then please relax in another place ! In fact, those people didn't respect the house rules we took care to explain them during check-in. They even told us we took too much time and gave too obvious examples, but they nevertheless didn't understand how we sort out the waste in Switzerland, mixed things up completely, let more than 24 empty bottles of alcohol, and simply let their waste bags lying in the garden, when everybody in Brienz is able to put everything on the right spot on the street. The person who booked the house did apologize for this. In fact, this booking has been for us the worst of the season and many things went wrong. We have never been sure who exactly stayed in the house, because the people switched during the check-in (without any prior information !). An elder woman, who complained about the house, didn't even stay there. Two younger people complained about the beds, because they weren't modern ones (checking the picture before booking is advised). And they told us only on departure about this, so that we hadn't the opportunity to do anything during their stay.
