No mattresses on the bed and owner arranged a viewing during our stay
The house was as listed and very clean and tidy. Checking in was very simple, and I was greeted by a lovely house keeper who waited for me, even though I was 15 minutes late. What ruined my stay was the fact that the owners arranged a viewing during our stay. I was not told of this estate agents attendance when my stay was originally confirmed, rather I was told during the first day of my stay that someone WOULD be attending the following day - I reluctantly agreed as the visit wasn’t presented as though I had an option. This made my stay uncomfortable, it ruined the aura of a home away from home and I was quite disappointed. I also was quite annoyed that I was contacted by the hosts yet again during my stay, to ask if there was any possibility I could check out early, because the had a back to back booking. Again, the really affected my ability to relax in the home that I paid to stay a in, un-interupted. I don’t think that I should ever be asked to leave early from a place that paid to stay in. This is the first time I had experienced these behaviours during a stay and I don’t know that I would ever chose these hosts again for that reason - I didn’t feel comfortable staying there at all. Also I slept on a bed where I could feel the wooded beam on the bed frame. It honestly felt like there was no mattress at all. Another guest slept on a double bed that was in fact, two single mattresses pushed together - they felt like they were constantly falling into the middle all night. We elected to sleep on the sofa and bean bags in the living room as they were more comfortable than the beds. Overall, the looked nice on a surface level but the experience of the stay was uncomfortable and unenjoyable; I felt very let down.
