Response from the owner Dear Candice and Jason. Thank you for your review. Once again we apologise for this extremely unfortunate event. We understand that it must have caused you severe discomfort and distress. This was completely unintentional and caused us much embarrasment and anxiety as it was entirely my mistake. In all fairness I just have to note that once I have realised what the situation was we returned your deposit within minutes, and although you initially refused our help in searching for alternative accommodation we did spend the same few hours looking for a suitable place in your price range which you chose not to take up. We also offered to pay the difference in costs. But, with that all being said, it should never have happened. Once again our sincere apologies. If you ever are in the area again and feel like staying with us we will give you one night's complimentary accommdation in the hope that it will make it up to you.
