Fine to leave a separate sofa review written by your brother in law on that booking if he so wishes. I am sorry if he was aware of the break in the sofa no one else has mentioned this.
The other guests were only checking out midday and think we had agreed you would just drop bags off on arrival and have a freshen up. I let you into the room so you could drop you bags in the right place more conveniently and, collect maps etc,
Its a 12 min walk to the station for most via top of York Villas I am sorry if it took longer for you...with bags etc.,I guess it would be a struggle - if you had let me know you were arriving by train I could have collected you and I offered to take you into town on arrival, I could have done a pick up easily. For some reason I expected you to arrive by car.
. Its true there are hillocks to do, to get here.
Usually the sofa is less expensive it varies according to season but August is high season and its hard to get rooms in Brighton for one night only - hotels don't offer it all. I made no cleaning charge for preparing the room which would usually be £10 and £5 to cover re organization of room/ washing sheets.
Hope this explains glad you are were happy overall with the aoccomodatiion breakfast and my efforts.
