Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We always welcome honest reviews and are devastated that that Dutch Barn failed to live up to your expectations on this occasion.
We employ a Manager to ensure that the Hot Tub is sparkling clean at all times and are sure that on your arrival this was the case. We would encourage all guests to ring us should a malfunction develop during their stay so that we are able to immediately respond. On this occasion you chose not to do this.
The Hot Tub was due for replacement in the near future anyway and in view of your review we have brought this forwards and a new " all singing all dancing" Hot Tub is now on order to be delivered shortly.
We would like to invite you to return to Dutch Barn to review the new Hot Tub as soon as you are able.
