Do you leave a review for high maintenance guests? I think one of mine thinks he is staying in a five star hotel.
Requested a shaving mirror even though he has a mirror in his room and there is one in the bathroom
Have I got black shoe polish please and then polishes his shoes on a pale carpet leaving black shoe polish in four places and black shoe polish on a towel
He wants his white shirts washed so as a kindness I have been doing them with my washing. Then when I got a new washing machine he said how he was looking forward to trying it out. He had two shirts to wash and I said I would do them the next day with my washing. The next day he wants to wash his shirts in the machine. I said I will do them when I come back in a couple of hours as I will be putting a load on. “Well can’t you do it now and push my shirts in with your clothes”. I said No but if you want to it will be £2.50 and charged him instead.
He had crumpets and no cheese so asked if I had any cheese which it was quite obvious I did as it was on the top shelf of the fridge - I said No.
He is nice enough to talk to but exhausting. I will not recommend him to another host not because he is awful personality wise but he is demanding and I know with instant book if a guest has been recommended by another host they can instant book. I would prefer another host chat with him first and make their own mind up.
However, in this circumstance do you just leave a bog standard no committal review e.g He communicated clearly and turned up as planned sort of thing or what do you do?
I thought he was high maintenance and almost declined him but this has just reminded me next time I have reservations to decline. I am not having guests this weekend so I can have a break after this week.
