 The bach was very dirty - dead flies on ceilings and walls, mould on utensils in the kitchen, extractor fan was dripping in grease, old loaf of bread left in one of the cupboards. It had obviously not been cleaned properly for some time!Description does not mention the steep steps you need to go down, which were unsuitable for our elderly parents and for carrying a baby.The wardrobes in the master bedroom were impossible to open.No lights in the hallway.No wardrobe in one of the bedrooms. Awful! 

  •  After we had received so many of your phone calls, we decided to visit the property as things did not seem to ad up, given that we have had this property for 3 years, your complaints seemed very out of the normal. When I inspected the property it was clear to me that you must have been staying somewhere else. All your complaints and there seem to be many were taken seriously, but come on did you really expect the Hilton for the tiny price you paid. BTW the stairs are mentioned on bookabach.

 nice view to the ocean, very modern interiors. 

 I liked the themed rooms. 

 Very modern, fantastic views. Beware of the steps as they are quite steep. 

  •  Thank you for your feedback as it helps us improve the Captains Quarters experience. The stairs are noted in the special Conditions, but we will look at how we could perhaps highlight it

 Unexpected up-grade to the Upper Deck due to maintenance on the Captain's Quarters. What a beautiful bach with a stunning view. We were there in June so would have appreciated some heating in the bathrooms. Loved the modern kitchen and bathrooms and the ultra comfy lounge furniture - perfect for watching the fab tv!
