Thank you for your review. I am pleased to answer your queries you have raised. You are quite correct we do not have a lift on the property, and this is not included in our description of the property of that of the rooms for that very reason. It is most unfortunate that you had a spillage in your room that required the services of a professional carpet cleaner to rectify. We strive to maintain a high standard of cleanliness and repairs and maintenance to deliver the best possible product to our guests. The applicable charge was $60 which is clearly detailed in our terms and conditions where you are responsible for any damage caused. We are quite happy to post the photographs of the damage to the carpet. We are sorry you did not enjoy your dining experience at the restaurant you chose and we will be mindful of this in the future. However, we offered you several restaurants to visit based on our customer reviews. Best wishes for all your future travels.
