Sweet Rose was the perfect little cottage to spend our first holiday together without the children. Everything was as described and the roll top bath was just heaven. The welcome pack was detailed and informative and the goodies we had were a wonderful treat. Thankyou Martin and Kim. We will definitely be back.
Time away to relax and play and be spoilt. So glad Sweet Rose gave all you wanted and more; certainly the roll top bath has been a massive hit for guests for that extra pampering on top of everything else. With so much to do and enjoy nearby, we wanted to give our guests a guide to the special places and hence the information folders - next time you come you can try others as well as the ones you feel in love with this time. Thanks for taking the time to write a review and see you again soon. Very best wishes, Martin and Kim
A Cottage With Style
On are recent stay at Sweet rose cottage the cottage had everything we needed for our stay ie Washing Machine, Dishwasher,Fridge and much more we loved the rolled top bath in the bedroom on arrival we found the cottage to be very clean and we found the garden at the side great for eating alfresco and the grassy area for your dog. less than 2min walk to the bus stop to go into torquay and 5min to the local shops Tesco,co-op,local bakers, etc the owner Martin and family was welcoming they even sent flowers for Susan's Birthday we will definitely be going back
Dave and Sue
So pleased you had such a lovely holiday with us at Sweet Rose. When we designed the cottage, although just a one bedroom, we felt it should still have all the mod cons that can make for an easy stay, although, as you found there are numerous places to eat out or take a meal in! The local shops, within easy reach, has certainly been a hit - unlike many historical places being in the middle of nowhere, we have the benefits of great local shops but still feeling in the countryside with its peace and quiet, within the garden and courtyard.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and certainly look forward to seeing you again next year on Sue's birthday. Kind regards, Martin and Kim
Booked as a gift for parents & did not disappoint!
We booked Sweet Rose for our mum & step dad so they could recharge their batteries & that's exactly what they did. They both looked very relaxed when they got home, even thier dog Bliss had an amazing time.
Mum said it was a home away from home & the extra touches made it all the more special. The property was exactly as described & shown in the pictures, but still they were surprised at how lovely it was.
Martin was very nice & helpful on things to do in the area but also gave privacy so you could relax & enjoy the holiday.
There are a few more holiday properties on site but you would never know really as it's so quiet there which adds to the peacefulness of it all.
Our mum & step dad would definitely recommend Sweet Rose & are even planning on booking again with the whole family next year
Sweet Rose 'oh how lovely is this'
Sweet Rose is everything I hoped it would be-the layout is thoughtful with great facilities. The property is very clean & appears well maintained I had no issues at all throughout my week stay. Owner has very good customer services but allows privacy he also has a great deal of knowledge regarding local area.
I would thoroughly recommend Sweet Rose (or any of the other properties on site) to anyone visiting the area.
I was visiting friends that live in Dawlish so didn't need to use that restaurants but reading the reviews there are alot to select from.
Would definitely stay here again.
Disappointing sadly not award winning
the property is extremely tired and needs some tlc.. a lick of paint both upstairs and downstairs ..
the dead pot plants with fag butts in outside the front door are a hazard for young children and pets, and not a good first impression..
the freezer door section of the fridge is broken, so water leaks into the area you put salad.. and anything on the top shelf freezes..
The lamp by the mirror in the bedroom doesn’t work.. and the mirror is dirty.
The bed has to be one of the most uncomfortable we’ve slept in.. the mattress is lumpy and the pillows so old they have separated inside.. as for the mattress protector.. I’ve never seen such filthy stains!! There’s no excuse...
The hot water is insufficient for a bath that size upstairs as by the time you’ve a couple of inches in it.. it’s almost cold..
the communal garden is neglected and clearing up someone else’s dog mess isn’t the best!
And being woken 2 mornings in a row by a toddler running around the garden at 7am shouting isn’t a great wake up call on holiday..
As the property is overlooked and a walk way to the communal garden, keeping the curtains closed for privacy was a disappointment too..
The pictures you are using to sell this property as a holiday venue are clearly old and don’t show the property in it’s now true light..
Which is a shame as it could be so much better..
I would like to apologise again for your stay. We pride our guests having an enjoyable stay so are deeply disappointed you didn’t.
As you can imagine however, it is difficult for us to know of problems if we’re not told during a stay. Our welcome letters do ask guests to inform us of any problems. The issues regarding cigarettes & young child could have been resolved promptly if I was made aware, but we do truly apologise that this even arose as we do ask our guests to be considerate to those surrounding them. I totally appreciate being woken up early on holiday isn’t the experience one hopes.
Similarly, with the hot water and lamp, these were problems which took no time to fix. I found the lamp plug was slightly unplugged, though fully functioning, and the hot water’s button for immediate hot water turned off; switched back hot water filled the bath immediately.
The mattress issue is however difficult to address; many guests say it is the most comfortable they have ever slept in. Seeing your comment, we will certainly investigate whether we should replace it in the foreseeable future. The actual bedding though was replaced recently, so we’re disappointed the pillows needed replacing so soon. Thank you for bringing this to our attention; those we use have now been changed.
The privacy concern you raised is new to us. Though understanding some like absolute privacy, the pictures provided on the website do show the properties nearby. Notwithstanding, all our previous guests have felt the space between is more than sufficient with courtyard, orchard & play garden for 3 cottages.
With the garden neglect, extraordinary weather hit in the 6 weeks before, with very unusual large amounts of snow and higher levels of rain. As I am sure you can understand, this made it very difficult to cut the grass. Thankfully, the weather has much improved; now full of bluebells & apple blossom.
We sincerely apologise, in part, we didn’t live up to the high levels we aspire to. If I'd been made aware of these problems when I saw you, I would have done all possible to put things right. Thank you for your constructive comments which have been taken on board. The guest who left yesterday scored Sweet Rose 42/42 saying ‘I had a fantastic stay and would certainly stay again. Sweet Rose was just what I needed to re-charge’, so thank you for pointing out some issues.
I hope this apology & refund provided shows we take guests feedback very seriously.
Kind regards, Martin
Beautiful, relaxing place to stay.
We were warmly greeted by Martin and shown to the Sweet Rose which was even better than the photos we'd viewed. From start to finish we had a relaxing and enjoyable 3 day break, luckily we got to walk along the beach at Torquay in mid February as the weather was sunny.
We would highly recommend the Sweet Rose to anyone, thanks again for providing this wonderful home for our short break.
The benefit of coming to The English Riviera with its warm climate! Even we haven't believed with the daffs out since mid January. So pleased you had an even better time than expected - we'll have to update the pics. We have always aimed to provide a relaxing, warm home to stay with a touch or two of luxury for that special time away. Thank you for choosing our Sweet Rose and for taking the time to write your comments. All the best, Martin and Kim
