    We were unhappy at not being informed about need to turn on hot water when arriving. We feel this could be done prior to arrival or emailed to us as these instructions were not obvious for us and left us with no hot water when required. Otherwise in all other respects it was a comfortable house

    Owner/manager responds:

    Such a shame you didn't notify us until your departure that you didn't know younneeded to turn on the hot water. We have a notice at the front door and a guests information book with all the necessary information for ensuring our guests know where everything is on their arrival. We found in the past that emailing the information about our holiday home was quite often left behind and required a phone call to get settled in on arrival. We have put an additional notice in the kitchen now.
