If we have prior knowledge that any such works will be undertaken at times which might cause unreasonable disturbance to your stay, we will of course notify you in advance and, should you wish, endeavour to either relocate you or offer compensation at the end of your stay following agreement with the relevant property owner. And finally, all our properties are professionally cleaned and inspected before and after each rental to ensure that all guests have a clean comfortable stay.
