Many thanks for taking the time to review Haverstock after your recent stay.
Regarding the issue re linen and towels for the sofa bed; I can only apologise for this oversight on our behalf. Usually if a guest requires a guest bed this is a 'tick box 'option done so by the guest on booking. As this box wasn't ticked it was not obvious to us on first glance however this is not an excuse for us not providing the bedding etc. It should have been apparent that this was needed from the number of people indicated in your booking. We could have easily provided this if you had contacted us and I hope that this not have a detrimental effect on your weekend.
There are 2 sofa beds in the property and the one we always offer guests the use of is the new one in the family area as opposed to the one you used in the Drawing Room. This sofa bed has been in place in the property for a while however it is totally functional despite its rather dated cover compared to the rest of the furnishings.
I appreciate your comments re the possibility of creating another bedroom as opposed to having 4 public rooms however we want to ensure that all guests have maximum use of the 2 bathrooms and 1 WC and feel that creating another bedroom, therefore making this property able to sleep 10 rather than 8 + 2 , would not give guests the best use of the bathrooms.
The built in speakers in the kitchen/lounge area have been temporarily disabled as they were proving to be slightly problematic for guests to use; the provision of the docking station in this area should have hopefully eradicated this. I have taken on board your comments however and will ensure that this is made clear in the information folder in the house.
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at Haverstock despite the oversight of the 9th guest and hope to see you again sometime soon.
