Our fourth guest just left and I have just posted a review. I know there’s nothing I can do about it now, but I’m feeling slightly regretful (especially as he left us a lovely review!), and for the future would love to know if it sounds too harsh. This is it:
“x was pleasant, courteous and generally quiet. We apreciated that he took out his rubbish, left the room tidy and washed a pillowcase which he had apparently soiled. But it was a very serious breach of our house rules for him to smoke in the bedroom, leaving us with a nasty problem to sort out before our next guests arrived. For that reason we would not host him in future.”
We were livid that he smoked in his room, though he stopped when challenged. There were a number of other niggly things, like leaving his windows wide open when the house was empty, having to borrow clothes because he wasn’t prepared for the weather and asking us to look after his luggage, but I just chalked them up to his being a bit useless.
