Stayed in Bluebell Lodge for a week and it was fabulous, lovely cosy, comfortable lodge by the riverside. All the ameneties you could ask for and as we had hired Bertie Boat as well we had it all. We have stayed in a Riverside Rentals Property a few times and I cant fault them, great company with some fabulous properties to make your holiday on the Broads the best
This is quiet a difficult review to write. We spent 1 week at Bluebell lodge which I have to say we enjoyed very much as the house is generally very nice , recently renovated with a super shower for UK standards and is in a super location in the beautiful village of Horning. Fishing directly from the back of the house was also excellent,see photo, with fantastic sunrises even though the weather was not perfect.
The big problem was that on arrival the house was less than clean, dirty glasses, hairs in the shower, crumbs in the kitchen and on the chairs and egg on one of the plates which meant my wife spent the first hour cleaning the kitchen. Also apart from a welcome gift of a washing up cloth , sponge and tiny bottle of washing up liquid there was nothing provided. Quite funny really as we had been making jokes about there being no toilet roll there but then we saw the cleaners, who were parked on our parking spot, come out with 2 so thought we were OK, only to find none in the house. Luckily we had bought some with us but this could be tough for those who have not. After contacting riverside rentals the sent a new cleaner around who did go around again but then mixed up my wife's clean glasses and crockery with the dirty ones.
We did enjoy the stay but it was not made special by nice touches that we experienced in our rental last year. I don't think we will be renting from riverside rentals again even though we will be coming back to Honing or area next year.
