What a shame :( Gin O'Clock could have been so much more

  • 3 of 5

Gin O'Clock cottage could be a wonderful cottage if a deep clean was performed. When we arrived we were instantly hit with a very fusty smell and a rather large stain on the carpet by the front door, i noticed that the dehumidifier bucket was full which hadn't been emptied by the cleaner so i emptied this and noticed the bucket was very dirty too. All the mirrors in the cottage hadn't been cleaned for some time and the cottage had not been hoovered that day ready for our arrival.

The dishwasher was full of pots from the previous occupants and there was a used cup in the spare bedroom that had been missed by the cleaner. There was also sweet wrappers in the main bedroom on the floor and a dental flossing stick under one of the bed side cabinets.

The small bin in the bathroom still contained the previous occupants waste and the bin that had been provided for sanitary waste still contained used sanitary towels i am guessing from the previous occupants...i was horrified to say the least. I showered on the first day and noticed that the water didn't appear to be draining very well so i checked the shower plug hole which was completely blocked with hair and scum, it made me gag trying to remove all the hair....again this hadn't been cleaned in a very long time.

I didn't contact anyone at the time as nothing was broken it was just basic cleanliness that was the issue. I booked this cottage based on the wonderful pictures that i had seen on the Home and Away site and this cottages looks nothing like the pictures....I understand that accidents happen like the stain on the carpet but there are great products out there that could fix this issue instantly...the first impression it gives is that it's dirty and it sure was.

With all that said we did enjoy our holiday i just wanted to let you know that whoever is cleaning the cottage is letting it down and the cottage is in a beautiful location and could easily be a 5 star property if it was given some love and attention.

I hope you pass this information onto the owners, if the cottage was mine i would be angry and horrified that it was left in this state for paying customers.
