April 2017

We love the location of where West Cliff Polperro is. The head room can sometimes be challenging, but we knew that when we booked. The only problem is the smell from the drains. We did mention that the last time we stayed there in October of last year. However, it was a little worse this year. On the whole we love it there and we had excellent service from you all at Toad Hall.

Thank you very much indeed for your useful feedback, we are so pleased to hear that you liked West Cliffe enough to come back again! We agree, the location is amazing. Thanks for mentioning the ‘drain’ smell, we are grateful to have it brought to our attention. Unfortunately, as West Cliffe is actually built into the cliff side overlooking the harbour, at certain times of year the drainage in the buildings in this whole area can suffer due to the weather/tides and temperature. Please rest assured that the drains belonging to the cottage itself are as clean as any normal domestic drainage system, and the caretakers work hard to ensure that they stay that way.

I was disappointed by the cost of the electricity. It was very chilly last week..i couldn't even light a candle because of the breeze through the window. That's fine, it's an old cottage. However, in 2.5 days, I put £14 in and that was not using the oven or the tv and just one side light. I dread to think what it would cost if I had kept the heaters on and used everything. It would be nice if there were at least some tea bags on arrival. There are obviously no carpets on the apartment above and I could hear every footstep and the child screaming. I loved the position and the views and The Blue Peter served far and away the best food but I doubt I would return unless the heating became a fixed extra price.

Thank you very much for your useful feedback, we apologise that the electric meter seems to have gone wrong at West Cliffe during your stay. We are sorry that you did not bring this to our attention whilst you were here, we would have been more than happy to organise someone to look at it for you. As it is, please rest assured our electrician has now attended to it and it is working properly again. We are not great fans of coin meters in holiday properties in general (as you sadly discovered, they can be problematic when they break down) and have recommended that all owners include heating in their rental costs. Unfortunately, in certain cases, owners prefer that meters remain installed to help to keep on top of electricity charges. We will certainly discuss this with the owner of West Cliffe to try to avoid this problem in the future. We will also mention that a welcome pack of tea/coffee/milk would be appreciated. He will be pleased to hear that you would consider returning to the apartment if these points were rectified, it is so popular and in a great location. We do hope to welcome you to Polperro again soon.

Really enjoyable holiday. Had zero interaction with caretaker or anyone from Toad Hall during our stay but knew we could get in touch if needed. Clear instructions left to help use TV/electricals/dehumidifier. Location was perfect and Cottage clean on arrival. If we decide to hire out a cottage in Polperro again in the future we'll be using Toad Hall

Only criticism was that had to wait for the properties parking space to become vacant and received no apology when the man who had parked there returned!!

September 2014

Beautiful cottage. Plenty of room for 2 people. Gorgeous views from living room window. We will definitely be booking for next year

The property has a fantastic view of the harbour from the lounge window, an excellent kitchen and all the comforts you would have at home. The only thing it lacks is a outside patio area and the toilet area is very small, but overall this is a very good property.
