    “Cleanliness was not up to standard, dusty bedrooms and hob not clean, dishwasher not emptied.”

    - Mrs Harbron, July 2021

    Thank you for submitting your feedback. It is always good to hear both positive and negative comments. You said: Comment: Cleanliness was not up to standard, dusty bedrooms and hob not clean, dishwasher not emptied. I too am disappointed that the cleaning was not up to standard and have already brought the cleanliness issue to the attention of the Head of Housekeeping at Heart of the Lakes. With regard to the dishwasher, I apologise if the laminated note left by the cleaner was not in an obvious place. I can't recall the exact wording, but it does ask guests to leave the property with used crockery etc. in the dishwasher on a hot wash, so that the next guests know that it is Covid safe. While this is not requested during 'normal' times, this change was made for the benefit and reassurance of guests. Thank you again raising your concerns and I hope you will come to Oak Bank again. Best regards, Monica Fisher Property Owner
