Jonathan S, General Manager at Dower House & Spa, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay in the cottage I am however a little disappointed to read your review, as I wish that you had taken the time to come and speak to me about your disappointment before immediately posting this review shortly after check-in. This is your personal opinion and not the opinion of so many of our other guests. We have so many regular guests that request the cottage as it is their personal favourite. I am pleased that we have now been able to speak to each other before your departure from the hotel, so that we have the opportunity to restore your faith in us. I look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Best wishes Jonathan
