We rent out a room in our 400 year old farm house in the alps, its a traditional house, made of wood, most of the internal walls are wood, it also has wood fires. We’ve only had 5 guest so far but 2 of them have marked us really badly on cleanliness, the house is clean, but its never going to be spotless, the walls etc are very old and as you’d expect have a lot of wear and tear, short of plasterboarding (sheetrock) all the walls (which we’re not going to do!!) there really is no way to make them look ‘clean’
so how can I manage peoples expectations? they seem to want a traditional swiss farm house but with a hotel sterile interior ???
