    “Unfortunately I would not stay here again.”

    The cleanliness is to be questioned. The oven smoked due to the amount of grease on the bottom that hasn't been cleaned and the grill tray was covered in old grease. Photos taken as proof. The cutlery and crockery also had to be washed before use. To which I might add that the water temperature isn't hot enough for greasy dishes. Also the aluminium blinds in the living room look like they haven't been cleaned in a very long time. Photos taken as proof The toilet seat is missing one of the ...

    The cleanliness is to be questioned. The oven smoked due to the amount of grease on the bottom that hasn't been cleaned and the grill tray was covered in old grease. Photos taken as proof. The cutlery and crockery also had to be washed before use. To which I might add that the water temperature isn't hot enough for greasy dishes. Also the aluminium blinds in the living room look like they haven't been cleaned in a very long time. Photos taken as proof The toilet seat is missing one of the fittings and has been stuck with silicone. The only place to put the toilet roll is on top of the toilet or the side of the bath. As my husband turned to reach for the toilet roll, the seat moved. Photos as proof The 2 seat sofa has an odour of vomit, this was noticed when we sat to watch the TV. The double bedroom has an odour of stale sweat which was apparent when the door had been shut. There is a lack of privacy at gillys cottage as every resident passes by the window to get to the car park. Also in the ad for gillys it shows benches to sit outside, it doesn't explain that the ones for gillys are through the other side of the car park and down a steep grass bank. Due to the above issues we cut the stay short and left 3 days early.

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. We are disappointed to read that you had a few issues during your stay, please know that if you had made us aware of anything during your stay, we would have rectified them immediately. The oven has now been professionally cleaned, we can only apologies this was not picked up prior to your stay. We were surprised about the comment of the sofa as this was new in June, we have visited the property and investigated thoroughly, we cannot detect any odours that you mention. We have passed your comments on to the owner regarding privacy, who will look to address the matter. We are truly sorry you felt the need to leave early, this clearly was not the right property match for you. We do hope you still managed to enjoy the beautiful setting and all that Hope Cove has to offer. Property Owner

About the location

HOPE COVE

Salcombe 4.6 miles; Kingsbridge 5.1 miles

The picturesque and unspoiled village of Hope Cove lies in the sheltered curve of Bigbury Bay on Devon’s south coast. A choice destination for families, the two beaches offering soft sand and rock pools for sandcastle building and fishing for small crabs. The town remains a fishing village where crabs and lobsters are still landed, however it was once used by smugglers. Many ships have perished around the coast and the wrecks that lie beneath the waves make it a popular spot for divers. Above the beach there are a number of pubs and restaurants. The coastal footpath can be joined from here and leads towards Bigbury-on-sea in one direction and the coastal resort of Salcombe in the other.
