Looking after our guests
On your arrival date our site manager will be present, and if you wish, help you with the task of moving items from your vehicle into the property. If you are borrowing mobility aids from us, these will be delivered or installed as appropriate. We will make sure you get connected to our wifi service and that you know how to operate items such as heating, TV etc. Where a day boat is included in your hire arrangements we will give you the necessary instruction and handover. We will also make sure you know where the local shops are and the best reviewed local restaurants. Before finishing our working day we will check if you are settled in OK.
Our manager/concierge will be on site every day and also available by phone for any serious problems that might occur out of hours. She/He will check in with you daily and if something’s not right work to address it. Typically, you might need replacement bedding or instruction in operating an appliance. We love to stop and have a chat but if more appropriate we will be very brief. Rubbish and recycling will be removed for you as needed.
