Thank you for your review and for bringing this matter to my attention. It is very unusual for our housekeeping team to get comments about the level of cleanliness in the rooms, as we are normally praised on the high standards we keep. I shall look into this and discuss with the team. I hope this doesn't deter you from staying with us again when you are next in the area. Jason Bartella Managing Director
