Very many thanks for your review, I fully appreciate the time you have taken to give me some honest feedback.
In response I would make the following comments;
Décor is a bit tired in places
The deckhouse was decorated only last year and so is in pretty good condition, I agree the kitchen units are beginning to look a little tired, although they are fully functioning. We will continue to appraise the situation each season
Rust on the metal shelving in bathroom - this will be replaced shortly
The smoke alarm goes off every time you open the bathroom door - I have never had this happen and likewise never been made aware of this fact - I will certainly investigate!
A welcome pack – will look into providing
A mirror in the main bedroom - we will put one in
Shower cubicle tidy - again we will put one in
Damage deposit of £250 is a bit high - yours was one of my first bookings this year and since then I have reduced the deposit and consider reducing it further for short breaks for couples on an individual basis
Once again, I fully value your feedback, and am very glad you enjoyed your stay and would very much welcome you to visit again in the future, when I hope the changes we will make will enhance your stay
