Response from Sharon D, Manager at Smugglers Cove Holiday Village
Responded 22 Aug 2018
Hi Madeline, Sorry to hear that you are still upset and probably understandably so. As Murray did go over and see the people involved about their disrespectful behaviour after receiving your phone call from your husband and the people involved apparently spoke to your husband the next morning and everyone apologised. It is good that you used our after hrs contact details. You booked online for your booking which it is a budget line cabin that you booked, we do have much more up market cabins available. We are in the process of upgrades to our cabins which we do every year ie: changing curtains and upgrading outdoor furniture and ect . We would love to see you come back, hopefully when you book next time perhaps book direct and we will be happy to look after you. Kind Regards, Shazz, Manager.
