Hensol Lodge Reviews

2 star review

there was a musty smell when we entered the cottage, the living room chairs were grubby.

I would rate our holiday 5 stars . The cottage 2. I would not recommend it as a place to stay
We are very sorry to hear of the problem. It has been investigated and has not been possible to identify a smell of any sort so we do apologise if you did not enjoy your stay. The owners keep the Rayburn running all summer to keep the aired and it has been fully occuiped over the last three weeks with no other commenst so it strange for a problem to occur, however it is useful to know about so that it can be check out for futurre guests.
