"Not my prefered style of lodging but ok"
Stayed for a weekend at Latimer House and it was a pleasant stay, the only real issue I had was the hot water running out on me and the heating. I wouldn't recommed it purely based on the fact t… More
We have run our holiday home for 8 years and have enjoyed having our many lovely guests over the years. The high point being a couple of years ago when someone sent me some flowers ( they were total strangers paying guests) which was incredibly kind of them. The lowest point was a group in September who unfortunately got bitten by nats or mosquitos and wrote a review saying we had bed bugs. I reassured them we do not. I am confident about this as 1. we spray the beds regularly. 2 we hoover the beds. 3 we wash mattress protectors regularly 4 I checked with 8 other bookings we had in August and September. 3 prior to that booking and 3 since. The guest that posted this review was one of the group from the "bed bug" weekend so make of this review what you wish. It is a shame. However I am immensely grateful to the other wonderful guests we have had who continue to support us

I am of course horrified to read this review. Cleanliness and hygiene is extremely important to us. We regularly hoover beds, clean and change all mattress protectors. At the start of the summer season I replaced 28 pillows as comfort is very important and we like everything clean fresh and spotless. We have never ever received such feedback as you will see from the other reviews. I have checked with the 2 parties just prior to that booking and the 2 groups since and not one of those 40 people had a problem. I also went down this week and spent the night there to double check for myself. Believe me, I would be mortified and would remedy the problem immediately if there was one. I live in London and I have received many mosquito bites in the last couple of weeks which I have read is due to the unusually mild weather. I am very dismayed at this review as of course reviews are essential to running a business. We work extremely hard to provide a house that people have a great time in and leave with great memories. Time and money is in short supply so we really do everything we can to make the whole holiday fantastic. The person who wrote this review wrote the below email to me which I have copied and pasted word for word, so I am extremely disappointed that she feels she can't recommend my house given her comments overall:
We had a great weekend, and enjoyed Ramsgate with the good weather.
The house was amazing & more than we could have hoped for.
All the ladies had a fun time, & it was all to do with your house.
Having said that some of the ladies complained of bed bugs & are suffering from bites, I
thought I'd just provide this feedback to yourself. Other than that the home was
all we had hoped for and more. We definitely would recommend your house to others &
stay again ourselves. Thanks again.
