Thank you for these comments. Unfortunately, the cleanliness concerns were reported a day after arrival therefore the management team were not given the chance to rectify any concerns upon guests arrival. They have taken the comments on board for future guests although it is the only time this type of comment has arisen. A discount upon booking was requested which was given and a refund requested afterwards but when our investigations were completed an apology was given with a discount off any future bookings. The refund request was refused.
