    “1. Yes.”

    There were signs that maintenance is needed. The ensuite door from the main bedroom didn't shut properly -- it needs planing at the top -- and the hook is falling off. 2. The bright light from Wetherspoons at night was a potential nuisance, as the bedroom blinds provided are not blackout quality. We were able to improvise something but this was an unexpected setback. 3. The bedlinen was thin and poorly fitting -- not consistent with the high standards elsewhere. 4. We had an unexpected email from a Mr Tom Morrison in Perth, asking if he could come round to check a reported washing machine leak. We didn't want to use the washing machine and didn't want to have him round anyway, so ignored it. 5. We'd have rung you during our stay to tell you some of this, but the phone interface was not encouraging -- we could have spent a long time getting through. A local contact would have been helpful for reporting issues. 6. The guest information about the flat was sketchy to say the least. No provision for separate recycling bins looks poor.
