Response from Ian W, Owner at Magnolia Guest House
Responded 4 Sep 2018
John, I'm so sorry you had issues with your stay. We always strive to make everyone's stay a happy one and we are proud of the fact that we achieve that in the vast majority of instances. It is such a shame that you didn't mention your issues to me when you were here. I have already identified the toilet leak and the problem has been resolved. As for the shower, it is thoroughly cleaned at every changeover and any silicone replacement occurs as part of an ongoing maintenance regime during off season. I must admit to being a little confused about your cold plates as they are always pulled from the plate warmer immediately before serving. My running the guest house solo is a temporary measure as my wife is not well at the moment but this is not connected to the issues you had. Once again, we are very sorry for the issues you had. Kind Regards, Ian.
