  • Mr Hostler

    “Hi, There are couple issues we had with the property that we feel we should bring to your attention.”

    Firstly, we had a major issue with locking and unlocking the main entrance door, which needs to be sorted as this could be a fire exit hazard. Secondly, the main oven door did not close properly, which we didn’t use as it released heat and shouldn’t be used especially around children. The rest of the property was well maintained, comfortable and clean. Best regards Jonathan Hostler
