Chapel House East - a house that sleeps 6 guests in 3 bedrooms
Minimum age of primary renter:18
Max guests:6 (sleeps up to 6 adults)
My family have, over a number of years, enjoyed staying at Chapel House East in St Mawes. While it always had the mildly damp aroma that is associated with a building of some antiquity it had not put us off returning once again. On this last occasion the location of two dehumidifiers, complete with a hand written request to operate them did not initially ring any alarm bells, however the increasing damp odour quickly became apparent and as requested both dehumidifiers were used. It is not an exaggeration to say that over the fortnight some gallons of water where extracted from the atmosphere within the Chapel. It was not until we returned home that we fully realised that almost all our clothes had an unpleasant damp clinging musty aroma.
I would also add that the lounge furniture is tired and uncomfortable.
These issues have been reported direct to Portscatho Holidays.
Thank you for your feedback and your reports on the property we do value it. Chapel House East is an old property by the sea and as such the dehumidifiers are placed within it to help ventilation. A circulation unit has been installed in the property recently to help ventilate the house. The owners constantly up date the house and renew furniture where they feel it is most appropriate. I am glad you enjoyed the Roseland and the surrounding area.
Very well equipped, except for lack of hairdryers! (at least - we couldn't find any)
No real problems, apart from comment above.
A very comfortable place to stay and in general,
very well equipped and presented.
One other minor moan - the extractor fan in the main bedroom ensuite remained on all night and was somewhat intrusive when trying to get to sleep, even with the door firmly shut. We could find no switch or isolator ( normal in most homes) to stop it running throughout the night.
Thank you for your feedback. There should be two hair dryers in the property, we will double check on our next visit and rectify. I do apologise that they were not there The ensuite is part of the air circulation system so does stay on low. Chapel House East is really well situated in the Village and well presented also it does have wonderful views.
