Response from Alex:

I wonder how many members of the group thought it was necessary to spend 2 hours cleaning the kitchen. I would guess it was 1 or 2. The washing up had been done, the floor mopped, all surfaces wiped down and the cooker and fridge were clean. What else can I say?

This is a very unfair review. "We had to clean the kitchen during more than 2 hours when we arrived" is simply not true - they didn't "have" to - they decided (or one member of their group more likely, with OCD, decided) that they wanted to.

This review makes it sound like the kitchen was not clean when they arrived. It was - I had spent an hour cleaning it myself. I honestly cannot imagine what took them 2 hours to clean! They told me that the utensils and pans were not clean. Well, my pans hang above the stove, exposed, as is the case in many kitchens, and any pans which do not get used for a while build up a bit of oiliness. Also there was a little few tiny water stains on some of the cutlery. If you are a prospective guest reading this, then take note: I DO NOT DO A DEEP CLEAN OF THE HOUSE BEFORE EVERY GUEST. And I am not going to change a thing on the basis of this review. If I did a deep clean every time I had a new guest it would be ridiculous.

I clean the flat - especially the kitchen - thoroughly to make sure it is tidy and hygienic, but cleaning every unused pan and polishing every piece of cutlery is something I might do once or twice a year, during a deep clean.

It's a shame that I can't change my review of this group - because after reading their review, I would certainly not recommend them as guests. I need laid-back people in my house, not people who are gonna go around with a magnifying glass and call an ambulance if they see one breadcrumb.
