    “I have complained direct to the owner regarding the following: Rusty microwave Mouldy teabags left in teapot Dirty oven Fridge light & drawer broken Dirty paw prints in bath!”

    Grey marked towels Sticky worktops I have had a reply from the owner stating they will report to cleaner & sent us Christmas wishes. The location was excellent but the above spoiled the stay due to us having to clean on arrival. This was a Christmas treat for my family.
