Hi I'm sorry to hear about the clothes left in the washing machine - I will make sure the cleaners remember to check in future. We take your comments on board about a hair dryer and an additional lamp. Sounds like other than that it was only the weather that let you down, so a shame you felt that the lack of hair dryer and a lamp meant you only thought we deserved three stars. We do our best for our guests and act upon any suggestions wherever possible.
