We’ve all complained about guests who leave glowing reviews but give just four stars. I’ve encountered a couple of cases of the opposite: guests who have been left good/glowing reviews by hosts, but not five stars. Most recently I had a guest with a positive review, but three stars across the board. I asked him about it, and he replied,
I only have stayed in an airbnb accommodation once, so I have contacted that person now to ask why he only gave me 3 star reviews and whether anything was wrong. His reply was that 3 is a “good” review that he gives to all people that leave the place like a hotel room and he does’t throw around 4 or 5 star reviews like that. Nothing has been wrong with our stay and he said that he would be happy to have us as guests again and that he said that he marked in his review that he gave us his recommendation.
