    “Second visit, so we knew what to expect.”

    ............which was all very good. ...

    ............which was all very good. One concern only ; from time to time a very unpleasant smell was noticeable in the bathroom,bedroom ,and corridor that joins them. This was of internal origin ( ie definately not from outside the building). The smell was similar to that given off by blocked drains. We did NOT make the owners aware of this ; it did not seem appropriate to write it in the visitors book! Perhaps you ought to make them aware of this though. We intend to return for a third visit if smell can bev rectified.

    When we were made aware of this problem we instigated a deep clean and a thorough investigation on what might have caused the concern raised. We did discover a small hole in the extraction system ducting which has now been repaired. We have had no further comments regarding any unpleasant smell and have been regularly monitoring the situation - Sykes owner relations
