    "This cottage is rated as a 4 star property i.e. "excellent standard throughout". We thought the standard was inadequate, and that the property is in need of some basic investment. We have stayed at numerous cottages, and this has been easily the most disappointing.On the plus side, the cottage had plenty of space for our party of seven (3 children, 2 parents, and 2 grandparents). The lounge was spacious and comfortable with a good tv and dvd player. The description of Hope Cove and the property's proximity to its attractions is accurate. However the flattering external publicity photo of the property does not reveal that the space in front of the property is a busy crowded public car park during the day.On arriving at the property we were assailed by a strong smell which we thought was damp. Ventilation made the smell become less of an issue upstairs as the week went on, but those sleeping downstairs (all but the grandparents) said the smell penetrated bedding etc. making bedtime less than pleasant throughout the holiday. We were surprised to find no soap on arrival. We have been used to a warm welcome at the other cottages we have stayed at, with provision for bathroom and kitchen consumables to last the stay. Very often there has been a welcome pack of tea and coffee and even cakes. Not at S19312. Washing up liquid was supplied plus one dishwasher tablet, one bin liner and one tea towel. But no soap!The electric shower in the upstairs bathroom was unusable as the temperature control lever was jammed at the maximum heat position, and the water was scalding hot. The hot water cylinder also had no thermostatic control. The downstairs bathroom shower worked from taps so was usable by our party of seven. The capacious fridge/freezer, the dishwasher and washing machine were all modern and efficient. The cooker, however looked at least as old as the house (about 30 years we understand) and did not properly fit in its housing. We gave up on the timer and used our wristwatches instead. Most importantly, my daughter felt that the design of the cooker was dangerous to young children as the oven door handle became very hot where the fan oven extraction vents expelled heat onto the handle.The dining table illustrated in the publicity looks attractive. Unfortunately the owners covered it with a rather grubby looking plastic table cloth, which is presumably wiped down between tenancies. We are used to a clean cotton table cloth at our other holiday properties. If the owner is worried about damage to the table through spills, the cotton could be placed over the plastic table cloth.More than one of the double glazed windows suffered from internal condensation, and there was a split in the plastic covering of one of the settees (which were comfortable). "Excellent standard throughout?" I don't think so.I contacted the caretaker, Karen, who seemed pleasant. She thought the absence of soap on arrival was normal, as there was a shop a few minutes walk away. She felt the same about the minimal provision of other kitchen and bathroom consumables mentioned, although she did later provide dishwasher tablets, bin liners, and a supply of tea towels. She promised to arrange for a plumber/electrician to attend to the scalding shower who presumably told her that the problem was fixed. It wasn't, and we never had a shower from this unit. Karen thought that we were expecting too much of a 1980's built house (as if thermostats were not known of back then!) Later she told us the electrician had said the electric shower was not repairable and needed replacement. As regards the damp smell she offered no solution.There is nothing in my comments that cannot be rectified by investment, and a less miserly welcome attitude to guests. We had a good family holiday at Hope Cove but would consider returning to this property only if the problems were eliminated."

    "Housekeeping service The property was clean and tidy on arrival. The house keeper responded quickly to our call about the fire /smoke alarms not working properly. She also addressed the issue of the child's high chair, which was not serviceable on arrival. She replaced this very quickly with a new chair. We had the following issues with the property: high chair not suitable for a child fire smoke alarms not working No oven gloves No hand towels provided for individual toilets - we could have brought extra with us if we knew. No toilet rush in upstairs toilet Microwave was very difficult to understand DVDs we would expect a small range of interesting films - sadly none Wifi code - it would be useful to leave some clear instructions on this Tin foil none provided Scissors were found in garden Bed linen was very basic, it could do with an upgrade. We enjoyed our family holiday and the location was great. Found the garden was hard work with small children. Many thanks."

    "A perfect house for a family reunion with everything geared for adults, children, babies and dogs alike! We were greeted by a huge welcome pack with everything we needed to start our holiday including 2 bottles of wine!!The bedrooms are spacious with large comfy beds and most with en suite bathrooms. The living area is also superb with a large sitting room with comfy sofas and a wood burner plus a library of books and games and a second sitting room which we used as a playroom. The utility area was spacious and ideal for the dog. The tennis court and table tennis table in the unused barn was ideal for letting off excess energy. Jo, the outside caterer, dropped off some magnificent meals and made the whole long weekend a wonderful relaxed holiday.One we hope to repeat!"

    "Generally the house was wonderful and the location was perfect. I have scored it as poor because the central heating did not work and there were other minor housekeeping issues that I would not have expected given the price ie light bulbs needing replaced. We did not alert the housekeeper to the heating problem ( not least that no mobile signal so difficult to make a call) as there were electric heaters available. Also these problems have been told to the owners before in the visitor book but have not been resolved. The house was expensive for what it was and not up to the usual Snaptrip standards. However I would say that the welcome hamper was excellent!"
