Thank you for your review. It is always very helpful when clients take the time to leave details of their holiday on Trip Advisor like this. I have spoken to the hotel manager about the slight hickup at reception which I understand was resolved after just a few minutes. It seems that the new receptionist was not aware that the keys for private owners are kept separately to the keys for the studios owned by the hotel. This ensures that my studios cannot be used by the hotel without my knowledge, and the system works well. The handle to the bathroom has been changed to ensure that guests cannot inadvertently lock the door now! I am pleased you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to seeing you again this year.
