    “I understand the need for longer cleaning time on arrival due to Covid, but I hope this will end soon.”

    A 5pm check-in time is far too late and means losing a day of the holiday. 1pm would match other properties we've rented in the past and would be better value for money.

    A 5pm check-in time is far too late and means losing a day of the holiday. 1pm would match other properties we've rented in the past and would be better value for money. The Wifi in the property needs some attention. It's a key service these days. There seems to be a glitch on the line that makes it drop out every now and then. BT should be able to solve this.
