          Re your reply to my review. 1/ You should make it very clear that you have a loan hairdryer. 2. You do not have complimentary shampoo/moisteriser etc. you have generic pump 'gel' in the shower. I was simply pointing this out to future travellers. Finally just a tip- these reviews are not there for you to 'defend' yourself. Sometimes this comes across as an attempt to 'argue' your case or discount the feedback. As i said my stay was pleasant and i appreciate your dog friendly status. The main issue really was the lack of idea and servcing re the remote batteries. Which i see you did not even acknowledge. cheers
