“Spacious house let down by lack of maintenance and attention to detail”
Reviewed 24 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016
7
people found this review helpful

Our extended family of 12 adults and 3 children stayed at Windrush over Easter. The house was cold as the heating was not working properly. We had chosen the house so our 89 year old father could have a downstairs bedroom. This never warmed up properly and the lack of heating was exacerbated by an ill-fitting window. He eventually moved upstairs which wasn't ideal. The dishwasher did not work - imagine the washing up a party of 15 created! It was replaced after 4 days. There were numerous plumbing problems, the living room fire had not been maintained, curtains fell of the rail and so on. The owner did respond to some of the problems, but we really should not have had to suffer them for the £2,500 we paid for the week. As a matter of courtesy it would have been nice to have a welcome note on the table with some brochures and a pint of milk! On complaining Jamieson offered us a derisory £100 in compensation - less than £10 a head.

We had just fitted an Evohome system which did have a few teething problems which were promptly sorted out. The dishwasher was replaced as soon as we could get one as it was a Bank Holiday weekend. These things do fail from time to time. Apart from that please see the review of two weeks previously where none of the issues raised were apparent. We were even berated because the guests didn't find the coat cupboard! I think one need look no further than the request for money to see what this is about.

“Perfect house for a large group visiting IOW”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed in the house for my boyfriends 30th birthday.
We were 16 people and still the house was big enough for all of us to sleep confortabily and have privacy.
The house is walking distance (20 min) of the ferry (west cowes) and town.
The views from the house on the sea side are fantastic since there is no building in front, just a school playground (or what it looked like it).

The garden is really big (enough for us to play cricquet!) and well taken care of.

All we can say is that we all loved it and many people congratulated me on the choice of house.

I would go back without thinking.

“Walkie Talkies trip”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

There were fourteen people on this trip and we found Windrush perfect for our needs, plenty of bathrooms/shower rooms and bedrooms and large table and chairs in the kitchen and dining room for us all to sit around.

The house was situated in the perfect position, not far from Cowes and central to all places on the Isle of Wight.

I would definitely recommend this house for large groups.

“Perfect for big family holiday”
Reviewed 2 March 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at Windrush over Christmas and had a wonderful time. The house is very warm and welcoming and the rooms really big so we had loads of space. Everything was as per the description, the weather didn’t support going outside which is a shame as the garden is nice and big and ideal for ball games. Would certainly recommend this to other guests.

“Disappointing!”
Reviewed 2 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

The images for this property are deceiving! It all looks very inviting but from a recent holiday, our family know otherwise! As for everything being in 'working order' this was not the case. Customer care was also lacking when we got in touch with the agent over things that had not been addressed, things that had been highlighted by previous holiday makers from a couple of years ago!!!!! (Evidence in Guest Book)
Certainly did not warrant the high rates that we had to pay because of the number of things that were wrong with the property! And, no compensation!
To name but a few:
Outdoor Refuse bins overflowing with rubbish.
Oven door did not function properly, door didn't seal and one shelf damaged.
No curtains in attic room.
No trampoline as shown in the pictures.
Climbing ladder broke on second day.
Faulty door frame to garden.
Broken Garden chairs. (One chair broke when our two year old granddaughter sat on it on the first day there)

It was unfortunate that these guests had a few things wrong following a Cowes Week let following which things were not as we would have liked them. However as these guests admit they did their share of breaking as well for which they were not charged. Compensation was offered in the form of a reduced price further stay, this was refused. It is a shame that such small items caused a two star out of five rating, fortunately the other excellent reiews compensate for this!
