Pauline, thanks for your review. As you may recall the message to you was asking you if you could try to close the doors a little more quietly in future. You have explained here that you slammed it. In old houses, apart from the noise reverberating through the house at night, pictures are sometimes knocked off walls...but, thats my problem. You may feel offended by the notice in the bathroom asking people to leave it as they found it (not absolutely soaking wet and towels thrown on the floors, as has been the case with many airbnb guests), not to dispose properly of sanitary items(not to leave unwrapped used ST's just thrown in the waste paper bin for me to deal with or in the toilet for it to block, as has happened with airbnb guests), sorry you didnt like the idea of not being allowed to take food up to the bedrooms (which attracts mice, then guests complain, things are spilled on the mattresses and bedding and guests complain, then I am left with replacement costs) etc, etc. I could go on, however, many people sadly, fail to appreciate that this is a home stay. Believe you me, had some people treated both me and my home courteously in the past, I would not have notices steering people as to how to behave when staying as a guest (paying or otherwise) in someone else's home. So sorry, if you felt offended by the notice and by my message to you asking you politely, not to slam(your words) the front door. I am also sorry that you disliked our chat in the morning whilst I was working and you came for breakfast - the only time we really interacted as I was away for the remainder of your stay. I am also surprised that you felt there was nowhere to eat? What was wrong with the beautiful oak table in the dining room, which I had spent many hours repolishing after an airbnb guest used bleach cleaner and a scourer to try to remove the cup mark made on the polish. There are rules, as in any home, hotel or hostel, which have only been made necessary through past experience to my detriment. You may be surprised to read this, but had you asked, I would have told you the reasons why. Thanks for your stay and your kind understanding.
