Mr Burfitt, September 2020
Before I comment on Abbots Wood Hampshire, I'd just like to say we enjoyed our holiday because we won't let anything ruin it.. It's supposed to be 5 star, no way, but it could be. Maintenance is none existent. Outside other than mow the lawn, nothing is done. The windows are dirty and desperate need of painting. The decking needs replacing, and the patio needs tidying up and repointing. There's old chairs and some other things stuck up the corner, needs removing and a good sweep. The balcony's have never been painted or cleaned it seems. The overhang from the roof over the patios in a bad state. The guttering has become detached in several places and is full of leaves, so when it rains it's like a waterfall. Inside the house again a lot needs doing, everything is well used which we expected as it's a rental property. In one room they had a job to get cold water in the sink, and when they pulled the plug out it really stank. It was also too hot in the room to sleep as there is a boiler in the wardrobe. Mind you the pool was lovely, as was the pond/lake if you like fishing. I know it sounds like I'm hard to please, I'm not. We didn't complain because we knew nothing would be done. There are lots faults with the place. We were not looking for a palace but it should be better. With the Coronavirus I don't think anyone would be using it. Why didn't they give it some TLC/maintenance. I don't think anythings been done for years. The house has a lot of potential, it's such a shame. I think properties need to be reviewed regularly to make sure of standards. Regards Mr Philip Higginson.
