I’m gonna go against the stream here:
Be happy with any feedback you get !
These people have been so nice to invest quite a bit of their time to help you improve. They didn’t do it with bad intentions, it was all good intentions and they really shouldn’t be getting any bad review because of this. Ok, some of their suggestions may be hilarious, unpractical, infeasible, etc. … but some of it you already admitted to being legit. They can only leave you feedback from their viewpoint, but it’s up to you to see what you take on board.
Let’s see what they asked:
Ziplock baggies => That wouldn’t be my travel essential either or I would take my own bags along.
Scissors => Can be very practical, but depends on the kind of listing if this should be available.
Full length mirror => My hubby for sure would appreciate it! He also considers it an essential.
Instructions to figure out the TV => Depending on the kind of remote control could be handy. Some of the remote controls just have too many buttons.
List of channels => Seems like a small amount of work and indeed could make more guests happy.
Online house manual => Maybe I’m from a different era, but I probably wouldn’t go looking online.
Didn’t find printed guest book => Reconsider it’s placement? Or mention it at check in?
Shelves in the bathroom => Open shelvers are the best I believe, everything that is closed off like a drawer makes me forget things when I checkout.
To end my plea for appreciating feedback: I don’t think that people who leave hand written feedback will publicly repeat this feedback in their review. Be glad they left it for you in private. This kind of people are not nit-picky, they just have an eye for detail and they give you better insight in what guest’s needs possibly could be.
Feedback is a blessing. Amen.
