Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

We have just returned from a weeks vacation stopping in this property, the building is beautiful but what has let the property down is presentation, the property was not cleaned very well, muck and grit upon entering property, dirty oven, baking trays filthy and need replacing also grease left in frying pan, stained rug in living room, upstairs toilet seat unstable and toilet stained, dirty bathroom sink with grime underneath, cold tap on sink can barely be turned on, mould around bath and shower screen, King size mattress stained, bedding old, stained and discoloured, if this property had a complete spruce and clean and replace items that clearly need replacing then I would consider coming back but at it's present state I would not consider.

Thank-you for your review, we can assure you we take all feedback seriously. We have spoken to the owners who have assured us that since your review they have hired a new cleaner for the property and have addressed all of issues you raised. It's pleasing to note that since the changes have been made all of the feedback we've received about the cleanliness of the property has been positive. I understand that following your conversations with our Customer Services team they were able to resolve this for you to your satisfaction. We hope you’ll consider us next time you’re looking for a holiday rental.

Me and the family went for a 5 night break over New Years eve, such a beautiful village, lovely walks with my 3 year old over at the Manor House. The locals made us feel very welcome in the pub, house was spotlessly clean, beautiful decorated and so comfy. Would love to go back

We actually stayed in this place for around half an hour.! We had arrived a little earlier than our 3:00 check in. Whilst parked outside we saw the cleaner locking up and she left the kitchen rubbish at the front door! On entering the property there was a distinct musty, dirty smell. It appeared that she had slept in the bed and had a bath ( remnants of bubble bath in the bath!) She most certainly hadn't done any cleaning! . The sink in the bathroom had an old cracked bar of soap with a hair and what appeared to be some sort of creature on the end! The cooker was covered in a greasy film. The whole place made me feel quite ill. We promptly re packed the car and headed home. After submitting numerous photos we were refunded the full amount.

The Tudor Rose in Montacute was wonderful. We loved our week there and hope to return someday. It was our first visit to England and we found Montacute to be very quaint. Within walking distance of the Montacute House grounds and two pubs that served good food we could simply relax and enjoy ourselves on the rainy fall days. When we wanted to go further afield, there was much to see of interest in the surrounding areas. The house itself was comfortable. I had never had the type of heating system they had in the house and was worried I'd be cold in England in October but I felt quite warm and toasty. It was just the two of us although it would have been comfortable with a family. The staircase is steep for USA standards and if I was bringing young children I"d want a safety gate at the top. Great parking availability. Close to the road but in a tiny town so we did not notice any road traffic noise when we were sleeping. The kitchen was fine. I'd love to return in the summertime. We did have trouble with the wi-fi but the owners were contacted and worked with us to fulfill our needs so no complaints about that. We were their first renters so this glitch has probably been fixed. Close to stores for supplies (groceries, etc.) but we did not cook as much as planned because there were two pubs with good food and it was nice to be able to walk to dinner and back.
