I have also purchased a new hair dryer as the prior guest may have packed it in error, my apologies as I should have doubled checked.

Response from the owner Hi Al and Lorraine, Thank you for your kind response and I do truly feel bad that you were not able to cook in the unit. This issue has definitely become a challenge for us, as a previous guest created a very difficult situation, that put housekeeping behind in terms of cleaning and a late check in for the next guests. I do agree with you that the Janion is a hotel type of accommodation and will update the TripAdvisor listing accordingly. I will also mention to the guests that they can remove pillows' and any other items for that matter and place them in the closet or wall unit. Again thank you for your review and I am happy to hear that you had a pleasant stay.
