    “No.4 High Lake was very comfortable and my stay there was very satisfactory.”

    Most important to me is cleanliness, which is even more important than facilities, and on this point I am pleased to say the accommodation was spotless and presented in an immaculate manner. Also the facilities were first class.

Also the facilities were first class. I wonder whether the cleaners reported back to you as to how they found the property after I left, maybe they thought cleaners had already been in before them. !
