Dear anonymous - I am sorry that you had to wait so long with not knowing what was happening; as well as being frustrating I can appreciate it must have made you more worried and anxious. I am sorry too that the standards of cleaning were not as high as we expect. I know the staff will be really disappointed to read this but will also appreciate your feedback as it is important to us.
