Great little place in a terrific location
Property is neat, tidy and well maintained. Has all you need for a get away. Location is fantastic, short walk to beach, shops or cross the road to sit by the river.
I am so pleased you enjoyed A River Bed and all it has to offer. I look forward to having you stay again soon.
Pictures are deceiving.
Spa - the spa had not been maintained properly, there was hair stuck in the jets, hair on the base and dust around the base aswell.
Hot water - there was just enough hot water for 1 spa with nothing left over for a shower, despite the owner saying otherwise. Was informed of a booster switch to press in the event of requiring hot water immediately, we press the booster switch which took 3 hours to make the water room temperature meaning there was little to nothing for a shower afterwards.
Heating - there was an extra heater supplied which was too small for even the bedroom, let alone the cottage. Both heaters combined all day made the cottage 'cosy'.
Toilet - the toilet base had a light seam of mold where water was bubbling and leaking at a constant rate when the spa was being drained. There was dust all around the sides of the toilet and the toilet made a continues splashing noise which could be heard from the main room.
Misc - the shower head was continuously dripping, 1x heat light blown and hanging down with dust all over the light unit, ceiling fan was dislodged from the roof, 1 light glob not working in the main room and the apparent dishwasher that was shown in the photos was not there.
Contact with owner was very good but care factor for the cottage is very minimal. It needs a lot of maintenance and even more cleaning to be done.
Would not come back.
Thank you for the feedback. I have addressed these issues with my cleaner and plumber. The heating units in lounge and bedroom are enough for most guests if doors and windows closed however there is another portable unit in the laundry if required. Unfortunately there is not a dishwasher. I do not have this selected as an inclusion in the property facilities.
Good pet friendy property!
it was a great stay with our little dog. It was not so bad not so good. House had everything we needed. Spa was the best out of all. But cleanliness of house could have been better. i suppose so because it was a "pet friendly"??
I dont understand this review. Why would a pet friendly property not be clean? All surfaces are wiped down, floors vacuumed and mopped, bathroom and kitchen scrubbed prior to any guest. Wendy
We had a lovely stay at a River Bed Cottage. It was so incredibly relaxing looking out at the river. Shops were within easy walking distance along the river and we enjoyed fishing straight across the road. The cottage was comfortable with everything we needed and Wendy was a responsive, friendly host. Our little dog enjoyed the neat garden and close access to lovely beaches. We hope to return some day!
So glad you enjoyed your stay.
Our stay here was a quick winter weekend away. Quiet location just a short walk to the shops. There was everything we needed. Spa bath was very relaxing. Perfect for summer, but may I recommend another heater for winter.
Thank you Sally for your wonderful review. Did you use the portable heater located in he laundry? It usually works a treat and combined with the electric is toasty?
Sunny winter break
great location, excellent for our little dog and the dog door made her so independent. unfortunate that the dishwasher wasn't working, it would be helpful to have a dish drainer if the dishwasher wont be fixed. the couches were so comfortable and the sunny aspect combined with the excellent weather that Aireys turned on made for a great mid winter break.
Thanks Amanda, Im pleased you all enjoyed your stay. New purchases are being considered so thanks for your comments.
