    “Bedspreads missing from bedrooms, dirt and dust underneath sofas in TV lounge, dishwasher not clean glasses properly even with additional rinse aid, the general status of the property did not match the pictures on the website.”

    cleanliness was a concern especially given the current covid situation. The information booklet was not available on arrival.
